Decision 2017!

This week Kereru Class have been learning about the electoral system and how we get a government.  The students discussed questions such as: What is an election? Why do we have them? What happens during an election campaign? How does the voting process work?
The students have been very engaged and definitely had their own opinions about the two main political parties and their leaders!
We finished the week with our own election with each student getting an I VOTED sticker afterward.
The results were.....
Winner: Labour 18 votes
Runner up: National 10 votes
Greens: 2 votes
NZ First 1 vote
It will be interesting to see if our votes match up with the real thing on Saturday 👀
Looking forward to our class discussion on Monday!
Here are some photos taken over the week:
