Grade 5 Students Vote

Fera Gunawan Times News

This September, all three grade five classes learned about Canada’s federal government and the major political parties. We researched the candidates in our local riding and used our critical thinking skills to select the voting issues that matter most to us. On September 20th, the day of the official federal election, every grade five student at John Knox was given the opportunity to participate in Canada’s nationwide Student Vote! This week, we had fun comparing our results to the adults of Canada, and discussing the policies and platforms that are important to Canadians of all ages.
