All four of our pupils were from Year 5 & 6 and included the Chair and the Secretary of our School Council.
On arrival, their names places were set out all ready for this special occasion. I hope that the children enjoyed their session with the Mayor and learnt much about the workings of the council and the role the Mayor has. Perhaps one or two might be inspired to go into politics? I'll keep my eye out for familiar names on the ballot papers in a few years time.
Thank you to Mrs Willetts for accompanying the children and to those parents who gave their permission for us to take the children to this interesting event. See below for photos...
The children represented the school impeccably and asked some very thoughtful and insightful questions. In fact, the clerk of the meeting commented on just how brilliant the questions from Downsview pupils were - well done, all!
