It’s Election Time at BES!

With a provincial election being held April 23, BES grade 6 students are busy preparing for a mock election. On Friday April 20 BES students will vote for their choice of candidate. Students are researching candidate profiles and party platforms, determining who will be the best representative for our constituency and leader for the province.

Remember to exercise your right to vote and be a role model for your child. Research shows that children are more likely to grow up to voters if their parents vote!

Here are some websites that students are using to explore candidate and party platforms:
