School Council Elections

On Friday 3rd February 2017, Bridge IPS held their first ever election to create a new School Council. During last half term, each class P4-7 have been preparing for our School Council Elections. First of all, Class Councils met and discussed how the election process works. We also held a special assembly on Friday 20th January. We were very lucky to have a special guest speaker. Ms Emma Hutchinson a member of our Board of Governors, past pupil and candidate for local elections. She shared her experiences of elections and the importance of a good ‘manifesto’. Back in class the pupils then had to think about what qualities would make a good ‘class rep’. For homework manifestos were worked on and in class presentations were given to fellow classmates and teachers.

Pupils eagerly awaited our Election Day on Friday 3rd February.   A great buzz of anticipation and excitement was evident in all year groups P4-7. Election campaigns were launched, posters have been made and badges given out. We are so proud of everyone who took part.
