Students flocked to the ballot boxes on the day of the General Election to cast their vote in the Samuel Ward Academy mock election - The event gave students a chance to participate and get involved with the drama and excitement of the tightest election battle for years, learning such things as what general elections are, how they work, what political parties are, how they differ, and which best represents their views!
