Democracy in Action at Waterside!
For the first time ever at Waterside, the children have elected their own Head Boy and Girl and Deputy Head Boy and Girl!
Children from Year 6 who wanted to stand for office had to make a short speech to the school in assembly to explain why they would make the best candidate. Then, each child was given a polling card and sent to cast their vote in our 'pop-up' polling booth on the playground.
A tense time was had by all as the votes were counted - but we are pleased to announce that we now have a Head Boy and Girl in place, who we are sure will represent the school superbly well, and a Deputy Boy and Girl who will offer super support.
Head Boy - Eliezer
Head Girl - Poppy
Deputy Head Boy - Tolu
Deputy Head Girl - Rumaysa
Well done to everyone who stood as a candidate, and CONGRATULATIONS to our newly elected leaders!
