Election fever seems to be everywhere and Castle Court is no different. Members of Year 8 have thought about what they would like their own political parties to achieve, and from this four new parties have been created: The Libertatem Party, The Student Independence Party, Today for Tomorrow and Only Intelligent Kangaroo Party. The manifestos concentrate on local politics (more choice at lunch, more choice in sports on offer and greater use of the school woods to name a few) through to national and international issues, better access to education across the world (especially for girls), less expensive higher education, better pay for teachers (that has gone down well in the staff room!), a focus on green issues and a request for life boats across the world – wherever you are you should not be more than 45 minutes away from rescue. So a diverse range of pledges and ideas. If you would like to read more then head to CC Central on the moodle pages to read the full manifestos. The Castle Court election result will be published on these pages next week.
