Year 7s at a Surrey school had a mock election on 22nd May, 2014. One class took on the mantle of The Peace Party and produced the following manifesto:
Stop spending money on the army and weapons. We can spend the money saved on helping people instead of hurting them.
Give children a say in their own education. Children are individuals and every child’s needs at school will be different. Every child should have a choice of which subjects and topics they study.
Buses and trains should be free to use. This will discourage people from driving cars and will help our environment.”
The Party also produced a stunning video and then achieved second place out of six in the final poll. An example to us all!
