The children have been learning about democracy at Buckton Vale. In order to help them understand how a democracy works we organised a special visit from the Mayor of Tameside. Before she arrived children were invited to apply to become 'A Mini-Mayor for the day!'
The whole school voted for the person they felt proved they would be the best at the job. The children had to prepare presentations to the whole school. We would like to thank all the children who took the time to apply and very bravely spoke up in assembly. Congratulations to Charlotte in Year 2 who was voted as Buckton Vale Mini Mayor for the day. She was given the opportunity to open the 'Royal Picnic lunch' which everyone absolutely loved.
Many thanks to Councillor Joyce Bowerman - The Civic Mayor of Tameside who presented Charlotte with a certificate and told us all about how she became the Mayor.
