The HB General Election
On Wednesday 7th June, The Henry Beaufort School held their own General Election for students which took place in SMSC tutor time. Each tutor group represented a constituency, with each student having one vote within their constituency - as similar as possible to our 'First Past The Post' UK system.
Tutors received packs with ballot papers and a tally chart, alongside a presentation to show to students to accompany the election. Some students made ballot boxes and sectionned off corners of their classrooms for a secret ballot booth. Each tutor group also had a Returning Officer.
The ballot papers listed the five main parties available in England and once completed, the Returning Officer handed the results sheets to Reception for counting.
The results of the HB General Election are as follows:
