Knockskeagh General Election

Knockskeagh General Election

We held our very own general election in February 2020 this year.
Each 6th class member was assigned a candidate in the Cork South West general election.
The morning begun with all 6th class canvassing the school yard!

Then they moved onto their speeches in the school hall where they outlined their own and their parties manifestos!(a lot of homework off and pizza parties were promised).

All classes from first to sixth class then voted!
Afterwards led by Mrs Beechinor , 6th class tallied and counted the votes! Here their Maths skills were put to the test!!

The quota was 49 votes to get elected!

After the second vote Holly Cairns – Roisin Duggan and Christopher O Sullivan -David Harte got the Quota and were elected!

On the third count Paul Hayes – Ben Coffey and Joseph Allen got elected!

All 6th class did really well!

The 6th class had a fantastic day and were able to see first hand how the electoral system works from canvassing to the vote count!

Well done to all involved!
