Local Democracy Week 2019

Y7 and Y8 students have been learning all about the importance of democracy as part of their PSHE lessons. Issues have been explored and debated in classes for the last couple of weeks, before a selection of students joined local councillors on a Question Time style panel in the college hall. Y7 students were joined by Councillors Lisa Collins, Howard Borrell, Paul Holmes to discuss issues such as climate change, anti-social behaviour and the rise in the use of food banks. Y8 were accompanied by Councillors Lisa Collins, Howard Borrell, Sheila Niblock, Chris Ludlow and Barry Dyke. Many thanks to all the councillors for giving up their time to come and join in with our debates!
