General Election comes to St Andrew’s Prep
St Andrew’s Prep, Eastbourne is all about promoting democratic processes and its pupils have been getting involved in politics by staging its own (albeit mock) General Election today as the country goes to the polls.
The election organiser and Deputy Head Academic, Paul Shouksmith, said, “The candidates’ statements were superbly crafted and delivered. They have all worked hard to establish a following and I anticipate the result being a close run thing. It is important that pupils understand the election process and have some degree of knowledge about the parties involved. This is a real chance to catch their interest in politics early.”
Interestingly, the result did not reflect that of the actual General Election. Very well done to all those who took part.
