Kids Voting is a chance for students to take part in this year’s general election. Students vote for real candidates, on a real ballot paper, and compare the results of their classrooms’ election with the results of the real election.
Head of Social Studies, Mrs Charlotte Saunders, organised for Wesley College students to participate in a mock general election as part of the nationwide Kids Vote programme. Year 10 students made presentations to the school about the electoral process and for each political party. On Friday the 15th students that had enrolled to vote were able to cast a vote for their preferred political party.
The votes will be tallied as part of the nationwide count of student’s votes.
