Speeches were given, the voting was held, there were joys and commiserations but we finally got to the result and a new group of students were chosen to represent Iqra as the school council for 2023! The day was made all the more special with the appearance of Madam Mayor Councillor Pauline George and Councillor Linda Bray.
The students who were voted for had specially designed badges ‘School Councillor’ awarded to them in the inauguration ceremony and Madam Mayor gave a speech (as well as a singalong!) on shining our light on to the world.
At Iqra Primary school, we actively promote children to take part in the democratic process and teach students the different stages of how people are elected to power so that they are able to exert their influence and make the world a better place to live in.
