Election fever has been gripping Newtown High School.

But it has nothing to do with the General Election or national politics. Students have been placing their votes for the Student Assembly elections.

Over 800 young people have cast their vote over the past week at the Newtown and Presteigne to vote for 83 candidates in nine different elections.

“Each student had the opportunity to elect a boy and a girl to represent their year group on the Student Assembly,” said a school spokesperson.

“The student representative body, which has powers over rewards, the environment and a dedicated budget, saw its elections tightly contested.”

The elected members were Jensen Jarman and Charlie Morris in Year 8; Lewis Jones and Megan Costall in Year 9; Kyle Challoner and Sabrina Wilson in Year 10; Rhys Jones and Gabriela Marciniec​ in Year 11 and Joe Banfield and Tilly Jordan in Year 13, who also became the school’s Head Boy and Head Girl.
