Ruddington school holds UK Parliament debating and voting event

FIRST PUBLISHED

Children from James Peacock Infant & Nursery School in Ruddington have recently taken part in a voting event organised to encourage cross-party debating.

The children, aged 4 to 7 years, are each part of three groups within the School; the School Council, the Mustard Seed Ambassadors and Eco-Schools.

They were brought together and encouraged to debate several subjects, including whether the School should fundraise for a new water harvester or for soap making ingredients for a community in Uganda this year.

Each child was given the opportunity to discuss different options and give their opinions before each voted for their preference.

The event aimed to give the children an insight into democracy and inspire the next generation of voters and comes following the School’s recent link with UK Parliament and its role within the Rushcliffe Schools Alliance Pupil Parliament
