The Mayor of Melton David Wright and former Mayoress of Melton, councillor Jeanne Douglas, were guests of honour at a special visit to Ab Kettleby Primary School on Wednesday.
The pair were welcomed to the school by pupils and staff and took part in a Q+A session during assembly.
They also spoke to children about democracy, the Melton Borough Council Coat of Arms and what their individual roles involve.
Headteacher Ian Toon said: “Our head school council boy and girl got to try on the chain of office and become Mayor and Mayoress for the day.
“Both children said that if they could change one thing about the school they would request that a new outdoor play area be built.”
