For the last few weeks students of the Archer Academy have been learning about the EU Referendum in their Geography lessons. Today there were quite a few heated debates and plenty of campaigning as Archers students got to vote in their own EU Referendum. Here are some of the thoughts of our students.
Today around the UK, everyone who is able, will vote whether they want the UK to stay in the European Union, which consists of 28 countries. At our school we had a school referendum and I didn’t vote because I’m not sure whether we should stay or leave. My point is there are good points and bad points, also I am not biased when it comes to voting, unless it involves England and football.

EU: STAY OR LEAVE
The day is finally here, the big decision. Stay or Leave.
Tighten our borders and scream adieu or play it safe and keep the easy passage over the European Seas.
You only have one vote. We might not be able to come back so think wisely and don’t make the wrong decision.

I think that we should leave as we could control the refugee crisis as we will have control over our boarders as well as we will also have betters trade with international countries which will boost our economy

At school today we have been holding an election on whether to leave or stay the EU. There have been many heated debates within the school on the matter. Posters have also been put up in order to convince undecided voters. So far the votes have been quite split between the two sides. Planes have also been disrupting our precious learning time by flying low with vote remain signs dragging behind them.

The EU referendum was today. I would like to remain in the EU because all the following things are good like peace, democracy, jobs, equal pay and non-discrimination. Also, the EU supports a lot of disabilities.

The EU Referendum
The referendum is a tricky vote, you need to decide if you want to stay in the EU or leave the EU.
There’s the choices leave the EU or stay in the EU. There are advantages and disadvantages to leaving or staying. Leaving the EU means less jobs but people might be more free. Staying in the EU means better economy but less control over our laws.

Stay or Leave
Today is the big day. This is the day that the people of Britain decide whether they shall obey to the rules and stay within the safety of the EU or break free and introduce their own rules on how to play the game. Most people have stated that they’d rather remain a member of the EU as it is well known what will happen if we stay but up till now it’s a mystery if we leave. We await the results.
