When do students learn about government and voting?

Students in British Columbia learn many different topics about systems of government, governance, decision making, roles & responsibilities, and elections in the social studies curriculum from grades K to 12. Several of our schools and students will have opportunities to take part in candidate forums and participate in mock voting with the support of Student Vote – (see http://studentvote.ca/bclocal2018/ for more information). Recently Bert Bowes and Alwin Holland students had the opportunity with support of their teachers, staff, and StudentVote to experience the voting process first hand. We’d like to thank candidates and past and present elected representatives for the time they share with our students.

We encourage all eligible voters to vote this Saturday, October 20th!
