It is difficult not to notice that in three weeks’ time there is a general election. At Mounts Bay we are committed to making sure that all students understand the basics of political citizenship. In assemblies this week are having our own Mounts Bay General Election debates where the Heads of House will present one of the six main parties’ viewpoints, in role, and answer questions from the floor. We are hoping to be following this up the week after next with student speeches and hustings and all students will be voting for the party of their choice on the General Election day itself. It should be an engaging and fun introduction to politics for the students with some memorable experiences as well.
