De Stafford Polling Day

I was at de Stafford school last week to have a look round the school during term-time and act as the returning officer for the results in their annual polling day. The whole concept of a polling day was a great idea – and congratulations to all who took part, and to those who were ultimately elected! One of the great things about the elections was that they give the students a real opportunity to get involved in shaping the direction of the school. For example, I believe there?s plan for a new school canteen, and those who’ve been elected are going to take a leading role in developing this as it progresses. The whole thing was very well organised with lots of people taking,
