The polls have closed and the ballots cast. The Cundall Manor EU Referendum has voted Remain, with 57% of pupils voting to stay in the European Union.
The EU Referendum debate may not be over, but pupils from the North Yorkshire school, had the chance to listen to two impassioned speeches from Madame Hunzinger and Mr Vale.
Mr Driver hosted the debate. He said: “The quality of the arguments have been excellent. The two speakers really did well to summarize the arguments that have been at the centre of British politics for the past 4 months.”
Mr Vale, representing the Leave campaign, gave a rousing speech advocating Britain’s long history of representative democracy, while Madame Hunzinger highlighted the benefits of all things European, in particular the benefits to British culture.
Pupils voted convincingly in favour of remain with a full turnout of main and upper schools.
Mr Driver concluded: “One of the interesting things to note is that nobody really knows how the country will vote. It is too close to call. I am sure many of our students will be tuning in early tomorrow morning to see how the country have voted and whether our referendum results will match the wider vote.”
Results from the national referendum are expected to be called at around 7am tomorrow (Friday 24th June.)
