On Thursday ‘Scotland’ Nook High School went to the polls to decide whether Scotland should be an independent country and just as in the real referendum vote north of the border there were queues out of the door as voters rushed to have their say. Election officer Aleena Ashraf (year 11) did remarkably well to cope with the influx of young democracy loving democrats eagerly waiting for their ballot papers.
The process of learning about Scottish Independence was started when all students in the school had sessions on the issues involved during PSHCE lessons in the first week of term. Then a group of dedicated year 10 GCSE Citizenship students put on assemblies all week for every year group in the school. The culmination of the process occurred on Thursday as hundreds of students turned out to vote to have their say on an important issue which affects the whole of The United Kingdom.
