In or Out? AHS students decide!

As we all know, the European Union referendum is on Thursday 23rd June.

All last week, our Years 7, 8, 9 & 10 students debated the various issues involved, such as trade links, free movement of workers, the floating currency and military alliances. They also looked at the history and structure of the European Union.

This all culminated with a visit to the ballot box on Friday to cast their votes – in or out?

By a margin of 487 to 281, AHS students voted to remain in the EU: 63% – 37%! Let’s see how close that is to matching the actual vote on 23rd June.
