Our School Parliament is a group of pupils who have been elected by their classmates to represent the views of all pupils at Someries Infant and Nursery School and help improve our school.
On Thursday 5th October 2017, we held a General Election in school in which our pupils voted to elect our new School Parliament. Our School Hall was transformed into a polling station in which our pupils cast their vote in real polling booths and posted it in a real ballot box! All our pupils took their votes very seriously and lived our value of responsibility very well.
Our 2016-2017 School Parliament was very fortunate to be invited to visit Parliament on Tuesday 15th November 2016.
As part of their visit, they learned about Chance the dog, mascot of the fire brigade, and the story of the night in 1834 when the Palace of Westminster was destroyed by fire.
They discovered who won the competition to design and rebuild the new Houses of Parliament and received a special tour of the Houses of Parliament.
They also created their own Parliament tile designs which are now displayed in school.
