Pupils at St Benedict’s Catholic School, in Bury St Edmunds, are hosting their own EU Referendum vote today.

It comes after two groups of students, representing the Leave and Remain campaigns, actively campaigned around the school.

They provided publicity and information, which was presented to their peers, and yesterday they led and organised their own debate in front of a large audience made up of staff and students.

Their comments were also tweeted live on @Stbenlrc.

A spokeswoman for the school said: “They gave very well informed and persuasive arguments and responded well to the questions which were given from the floor.”

“We are looking forward to seeing what the results will be for our referendum,” she added.
