We are running a Mock Election at school…here is how it works.
Now: All candidates need to select their 6th form support team.
They also need to check out their party manifesto, available on the internet.
Start planning your election posters and your oral presentations to assemblies – you will each speak for a maximum of 2 minutes, following an introductory PowerPoint. We recommend keeping it to 5 or 6 key points.
Wednesday 22nd April:
There will be a meeting at break in H1 for any students from KS3/4 who would like to be part of a team. All candidates and 6th form supporters to attend. Then you can finalise your campaign teams – make sure they are not too large.
Mon 27th April:
Put up posters – keep it positive, maximum 10, A4 maximum size. Make sure they are put up straight and in sensible places.

Each candidate will speak in KS3 and kS4 assemblies (Mon Year 11, Tues Year 10, on to Fri Year 7)

Tues and Wed 4th and 5th May:
