The students of the CEIP Mediterráneo are already immersed in their electoral campaign to elect the candidate that will represent them in the Children's Plenary next December.
Last Monday, November 4, the Councilor for Education, Irene Ruiz, attended the presentation of nominations by the nine parties created by the children, all of them students of 6th Primary Education, who showed their proposals and slogans in the school located in Cabo de Palos.
Alongside the Mediterranean, this course participates in this program offered by the Department of Education of the City Council of Cartagena, the Ciudad Jardín, Gabriela Mistral and Virgen del Carmen schools.
Irene Ruiz was able to learn first-hand about the â€śvery interesting proposalsâ€ť of the students in the field of climate change and actions for the environment, the theme chosen by the council that directs to focus the motions of the Children's Plenary this year, and on which each school will present a motion to debate in the plenary session.
In the next few days we will know the name of the one who will be mayor or mayor of the Plenary on December 4 from among the candidates of the four participating centers.
In this session, all 6th graders will participate, around 250 children who will attend the City Hall as spectators or as council-representatives (seven students per center).
The mayor of Education took good note of the proposals of the children and encouraged them to participate, within a few years, to exercise their right to vote in a "critical and responsible" manner.
