On 15th March, three members of our School Council represented High View in the wider City Youth Council in the City’s Council Chambers. Florence M, Leighton B and Ina M participated in a full agenda meeting. They were involved in making decisions about the future priorities of the city and offering ideas on promoting the Public Art Project at St Andrew’s Church. The setting is very similar to the House of Commons and the democratic process was clearly explained. They had microphones to talk about their views and opinions, a little daunting at first, but they soon got used to it. The children learnt how to debate and to cast a vote, also how to put ideas across in a way that draws the audience in. I would like to thank all three children for being fantastic ambassadors for High View and for Plymouth.
