Students engaged in the democratic process this week as they voted for Trafford’s UKYP representative. Four out of five of the candidates running were AGGS students. The results will be counted next Wednesday at the Town Hall, we excitedly await the result. Good luck to Hania, Meera, Safa and Sanah.
This was an excellent way to explore the voting process with students and how a political campaign works.
The UKYP elections are back and we have four AGGS students running for office. Elections will be held in the dining hall on Weds 16th March for all year groups to participate and choose the next Trafford MYP ( Member of Youth Parliament).
You will see the representatives in assemblies this week and during form time. If you don’t catch the video make sure you view it on Youtube here: https://youtu.be/WtUDaxkuoGw
Good luck to Hannah, Safa and Alice all members of AGGS.
Last week six AGGS students put themselves forward to stand for election in the Trafford UKYP election process. The process was conducted at Trafford Town hall with the Mayor and local councillors listening to the speeches and then choosing their top four candidates to stand for election.
These candidates will battle it out for your votes and elections will take place in school over the next few weeks. Three out of the four candidates chosen were AGGS students which is fantastic. All candidates who stood should be congratulated for their efforts and the great speeches that were made.
The three chosen candidates from our school are:
Watch out in assemblies next week for their candidate videos.. Who will you vote for?
It was also the time for outgoing MYP Lauren Barclay to make her closing speech. Well done Lauren for a very successful year as MYP.
