They may still be too young to vote in the EU Referendum, but Cranford House pupils know that its outcome will have a big impact on their futures. Pupils of all ages have thrown themselves into the Remain or Leave debate this week with gusto!
A week dedicated to all things EU saw the school exploring this complex issue with a host of assemblies, activities, quizzes and games, while each Senior School year group held their own lunchtime Brexit debate on the topic, showing an impressive depth of research and understanding.
The school’s EU Week was topped off by a visit from local MP for Henley, John Howell, who presented the girls with his thoughts on the Referendum and the countrywide issues raised by leaving or staying in the EU.
He fielded lots of questions from the Cranford pupils and also impressed upon them the importance of an interest in politics. Who knows? He may have even inspired some future politicians!
As a finale, the week of the vote will see the school transformed into a pupil polling station as these voters of the future finally have their say about the summer’s hottest topic.
