Last month we had a busy time finding a president for Senior Infants. We decided we needed to have an election and worked in small groups. Every team had a candidate, Art designer and problem solver and we worked together to create a convincing campaign. We had many planning meetings where we came up with all of our ideas and strategies. Our first task was to create some eye catching posters for the classroom to encourage our class to vote for us. We had great fun putting these together.
We then wrote speeches for our friends where we outlined 3 reasons why people should vote for us and what our dream plan would be if elected. There were a lot of adventurous ideas such as a spa for the teachers and puppies for the school!
The next step was to create campaign videos and we asked our lovely buddies in 5th class to help us with this task. They are amazing directors, filmers and editors and we were delighted with the results.
We invited the classes in the school to watch our videos and to come and vote in the Polling Station we created in our classroom. We had so many children, staff and parents in our room to vote and we had such a great time organising the event!
When the Polling Station closed we started to count the votes. We were based in different counties of Ireland. When we had counted all of our votes we called them out to Ms Harris who wrote them on the board. It was so exciting to see the numbers grow!
We were so excited for our friend J.B who won the election. Well done to his team too who were fantastic support!
What a great project. Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to all who voted! ⭐️
