Every child wrote a manifesto and many prepared speeches and videos to put themselves forward for election.

The halls and corridors were decorated in election posters and there was a rea l buzz around the school.

A Polling Station was set up in the assembly hall and Primary 6 children checked everyone’s ID and issued voting papers.

Each ballot paper was carefully counted and the children waited with bated breath for their special visitor, Claire Sugden MLA, to come in and announce the winners.

Claire, a former pupil at Killowen Primary School, was excited to return to the school.

Claire spent time answering many questions in each class and gave the children an insight into the democratic political system.
