It’s Voting Season!
Last week our middle school students ran for various positions on our Knesset (student council). We listened to their speeches and then went through the private voting process.
Today, it was our turn to run! Five well-deserving candidates gave speeches to their peers for the position of Class Representative. It’s not always easy to speak in front of the class, and they all did a great job! Although there had to be one winner, I was so impressed with the support and camaraderie all the students showed each other.
Next week, as the Canadian population prepares to vote, our students will also have the opportunity to have their voice heard. With grade 5 students at the lead, they have been researching the various parties, their leaders, MP candidates, and platform highlights. They will share this information with students in grades 3-8 on Thursday, October 17th, as the OJCS participates in the Student Vote Canada 2019.
We’ll definitely keep you posted on the results. It will be interesting to see how our students feel compared to the rest of Canada!
