Kelvin Votes

 

Kelvin students took part in an exercise in democracy on the same day Winnipeggers went to the polls to elect a new Mayor (October 22).  Students in grades 9 through 12 were invited to discuss and debate the seven mayoralty candidates and to cast their ballots for their preferred nominee in the Social Studies hallway.  Over 200 students took time out between classes to vote and the results contrasted with those in the actual muncipal elections.

Students in grade 9 Canada dans le monde contemporain (Social Studies, Immersion française) polled fellow students and family members on what made them proudest as Canadians, Manitobans and Winnipeggers, then analyzed polling results of a Winnipeg Foundation youth survey, before writing letters to a variety of candidates for City Council and Mayor as well as to Members of Parliament and the Prime Minister.  More information on these and other Kelvin Social Studies events and activities at kelvinsokalski.wikispaces.
