St Anthony’s School for Girls marked National UK Parliament Week with a range of explorative and educational activities.
Pupils explored the election process by holding their own student council election to vote in a student councillor for each class.
Candidates running for the positions prepared and delivered their campaign speech to the student body and the children then voted for who they believed would best represent each year group.
Children from the school were also given the opportunity to meet their local MP, Mike Freer, during a visit to the Houses of Parliament.
Head teacher Laura Flannery comments: ‘It has been inspiring to see the girls engaging in activities surrounding UK Parliament Week. At St Anthony’s we recognise the importance of educating our pupils for the future, and understanding democracy is an important part of this
