Oak Bay will once again be holding a Student Vote to run alongside Federal Election. It is a real way to prepare students for their democratic rights and responsibility. Our voting day will be Friday, Sept 17 from 9:05 – 2pm. All teachers are asked to bring down their classes in blocks A or B, and students with spares can come when things quieten down. We want a massive turnout (unlike the real political realm) and our results will be forwarded to the CBC who broadcasts on Election Night (Sept. 20). It is always interesting to see how student opinions differ from the general electorate.
If you have questions, please contact: Mrs. Gillespie or Mr. Sran. GET OUT THE VOTE!
