After last Terms IDL on the Scottish Parliament, where the children of Primary 7/6 researched how a democracy works and how elections are run, the children and staff of St. Mun’s went to the polls to cast their votes on who should represent the School for the session 2015/16.
The Primary 7 children, candidates for Head Girl and Boy, appeared just as nervous when the polls opened as they had done while delivering their election speeches to a packed assembly the week before. While those not standing for election set up the polling station and acted as Polling Clerks.
After a closely fought contest the results were as follows:
Head Girl – Carmen Martin Head Boy – Mark Crowe
Depute Head Girl – Lauren Devlin Depute Head Boy – Luca Drovandi
Pupil Council Reps:
Primary 1 – Liam Ferguson Primary 2 – Richard McDaid
Olivia McLaughlin Kimberley Colquhoun
Primary 3 – John McIntosh Primary 4 – John Graham
Kalie Irwin Freja Bulloch
Primary 5 – Lewis Wakefield Primary 6 – Lucas Campbell
Emily McDaid Abi Boyce
The elected children will be responsible for listening to the voices of their peers and representing them at pupil council meetings with the senior management team.
