Pre Prep’s General Election

Pre-Prep pupils threw themselves into their own General Election last week and learned all about the electoral system.


Working in groups, children discussed issues that were important to them and things that would benefit the community around them.  They formulated manifestos from their ideas and party names, which were:

  • The Animal Protection Party 
  • The UK Caring Party
  • The Care care Party
  • The Eco Party
  • The Happiness and Health Party
  • The Helpful Party
  • The Saving Life of Public Team

Representatives from each party then presented their manifestos before the Haybrook ballot took place!  Votes were counted and the winner was The Helpful Party, although all the parties had some wonderfully, thoughtful ideas. Our MP’s could learn a lot from the children in St Francis Pre Prep, maybe there is a future Prime Minister amongst them!
