By the end of the project learners will understand that:

  • I have a voice and my vote makes my voice heard
  • I have the power, through my vote, to influence decision making

Students will be able to demonstrate this understanding by campaigning for and participating in an authentic school-based referendum.

Good democracy education for Year 6 learners can be delivered in line with the following evidence-based principles and the associated knowledge, skills and experiences.
