Blue Coat holds its own Referendum

Tuesday 28 June 2016 was a life-changing day for the country, and whilst we were keen for pupils to understand the implications of Brexit, the children were invited to vote on two other matters of school importance. Pre-Prep were deciding whether or not to make a campus plan for our new headmaster, Mr Neeson, so that he would be able to find out the location of each child in school. They dutifully queued up and showed their polling cards to the polling officers before marking their box of choice with an X. Members of the School Council joined Mrs Andrews to open the sealed polling boxes and excitedly counted up the votes. In the end, after a few abstentions and ‘No’ votes, the resounding majority had agreed that a plan was indeed a good idea – phew! Meanwhile Prep children were deciding whether Enrichment Homework should be introduced into Years 3 and 4, in addition to the current Years 5 and 6. The result was a close call in Years 3 and 5 but the overall majority were in favour, with the YES voters winning 62% to 38% (173 votes to 106). Discussions will now proceed to take this idea forward.
