Kent Youth County Council Elections 2022Posted on: 04/01/2023
CDS is delighted to confirm that two excellent Year 9 pupils, Jasmine and Leah, have both won the recent Kent Youth County Council elections. Both students have worked extremely hard on their campaigns and on getting other pupils to vote for them. A huge congratulations from everyone at The Charles Dickens School!
CDS had the opportunity to catch up with these pupils to see how they feel about their marvellous success.
Leah: “I found out on Friday at my Nan’s house when I was about to do my homework. I was really surprised! I then text my parents to tell them - they were so proud!”
Jasmine: “I checked my emails and found out whilst on the school bus. I didn’t speak for a while as I thought it was a joke! It felt very surreal. My family were really happy - they started cheering and patting me on the back!”
CDS will follow the adventures of both Leah and Jasmine as they now begin working with the Youth Council.
