Normally school age children find the election of a new prime minister a boring process. Their television programmes are taken from the schedule and instead are replaced with dry political debate. However, at Riversdale Primary School every child is eagerly participating in the election process.
Each child wrote their own manifesto as to what their policies would be if they were elected Prime Minister.  These ranged from Felicity in Year one stating that she would make sure that everybody who had to go to hospital would have someone to hold their hand, to Cate in year 6 who would personally fill in every pothole in the country.
Children elected an MP for every class and then the hustings were held.  Each MP and their team have produced banners, posters, badges and flyers. Every child will visit the ballot box on Thursday May 6th and cast their vote!
Will it be – the Happy Party, the Sports Party, the Ginger Party, the Riverservatives, the SuperHero Party, the Magic Party.  We wait with debated breath!
