Making our mark for Democracy Day!

What a start to a new school year!


Thursday 19th September was Democracy Day at Colsterworth CE Primary School and this year our amazing children have really embraced Democracy Day with record numbers putting themselves forward as Student Councillors from Y1 - Y6. Their work and effort was evident as they presented their manifestos to their peers with confidence and enthusiasm.


UNICEF Article 12 states that every child should have their opinion heard, and so everyone was given the opportunity to vote for which child would best represent them as a Student Councillor. They were given a polling card, which they then exchanged for a ballot paper to cast their vote.


The results will be announced in a special assembly on next week, where the children will receive their new badges and be officially sworn in as Student Councillors.


The Student Council will continue to be led by Class Teacher Mrs Emma Helliwell. We are sure you can look forward to future Student Council news.
