Yesterday election fever arrived at Melling! The twelve members of the Melling Junior Parish Council went head-to-head in a bid to be elected Prime Minister! In preparation, they had to write a manifesto, outlining a law they would like to introduce and also how they would spend a sum of £200 to make our school a healthier place.
The candidates turned out in fine form-several in suits!- sporting the rosettes of their party and spoke with conviction and passion. The whole school listened intently to the manifestoes and questioned some of the promises made! Later on, each child cast their vote and Y5, as Returning Officers, counted the votes.
The successful candidate was announced today in assembly...Kristian Myers of the Super Safety party! Huge congratulations, Kris! A budding David Cameron...or Ed Milliband...or....?
