Bolton School Boys' Division is holding its own election to
mirror the General Election, and just like the real thing the vote
will be held on 6 May.
There are five candidates in the school election, and both
teachers and pupils will be able to cast their vote on the day. The
Labour candidate is Joel Harrison-Hirst from Year 13, Matthew
Trevalyan also from Year 13 stands for Conservative, Liberal
Democrats are represented by Cameron Lee from Year 8, UKIP by
Richard Hamer from Year 11 and the Green Party by Nicholas
Fairclough also from Year 11.
The boys have been busy campaigning during the month leading up
to the big Election Day, including poster campaigns and a hustings
outside the boys' dining hall giving them the chance to formally
make their political speeches. Each candidate has also had the
chance to address every year group in assemblies, and been
questioned by the Senior and Junior Literary and Debating
Societies, and the History Society where they were grilled on their
policies on national issues such as education, taxes, immigration
and the economy, and topics within school including charity work
and lunch arrangements.
During their campaigns, the boys have received support and
encouragement from the real parties, and with just a week to go,
they are all working even harder to get as many votes as they can
on the big day.
