The Electoral Commission donated polling booths and a ballot box, which made the polling day feel even more authentic for the pupils.

The results of the school council election and the ‘Eco-Warriors’ for the school year were announced by the Mayor, Councillor Thomas Hogg.

The school runs the council programme to provide pupils with a voice.

“The purpose of our school council is to encourage the voices of the pupils in Mossley Primary School to be heard. We hope that all children can become involved in all aspects of school life and play an active part in making Mossley Primary School the best school that it can be,” a school spokesperson explained.

“We want the pupils in our school to be the citizens of today, not just the citizens of tomorrow.”
