With Theresa May’s Brexit and DUP difficulties in the national news, London Colney schoolchildren are seeing if they can do any better.
Year 5 pupils at London Colney Primary School have delivered speeches on why they should be the school’s members of parliament.
The whole school voted on who they wanted to be MPs, with their own polling card which had to be checked off against an electoral roll.
Deputy head Annie Swan said she was “extremely pleased” with how the day went, saying: “In the build-up to the day, the school was buzzing with excitement as the children went around the school on their election campaign, canvassing for votes.”
These MPs are responsible for chairing meetings of class councillors, then taking these views to the headteacher.
Decisions are then actioned, and these are fed back to pupils by the MPs.
The school believes it is the only one in London Colney which has held this sort of election.
