The Blue party won here as well...
VOTE BLUE: Pupils from Heatherton House School got involved in the democratic process at school ENGAGED students enjoyed the run-up to general election day.
Girls in year six at Heatherton House School, in Copperkins Lane, Amersham, created political parties complete with manifestos, election strategies and party leaders, as part of their current affairs and thinking skills lessons. They held a Heatherton House Election Day last Thursday. Headmaster Peter Rushforth said: “It has been such an insightful and valuable exercise for our year six girls to take part in their very own general election.
“They have really risen to the challenge and I’ve been very impressed with the skills of diplomacy, teamwork and persuasion the girls have displayed.”
The girls’ manifestos included promises of bouncy castles in the playground, more trips to Thorpe Park and creating a special internet police.
Sarah Tobin, leader of the winning Blue party, and a firm believer in voices for children, said: “Children may only be 27 per cent of the population, but we are 100 per cent of the future.”
