We have been exercising our democratic rights by voting in our school council elections. We all had the opportunity to write our own manifestos, campaign and finally vote for who should be our elected school councillors. We have had the opportunity for our voices to be heard and our views to be taken into consideration as to who we would like to represent our class. We discussed why it is important in our society to have a democracy, where everyone has an equal vote. We know that in some countries, this is not the case.
After working in small groups to decide on what makes for a happy classroom, we thought about rules we should have in our classroom to promote an effective working environment.
