Monday 19th September 2016, was the first session of the Stevenage Schools’ Parliament for this academic year.

Our two Schools’ Parliament representatives met with the Mayor, Stevenage councillors and children from other local primary and secondary schools in the council chambers to discuss issues that affect children in Stevenage.  The focus of the Parliament for this year will be Stevenage’s 70th Birthday, a Keep Stevenage Tidy Campaign and how to use social media to give the young people of Stevenage a voice.

The next step for the Parliament representatives is to share the issues discussed with the children back at their own individual schools, so that they can find out their opinions and ideas, these will then be shared when Parliament meets again and a plan of action created.

 

On Monday 21st September 2015, two of our Year 6 School Council members took part in the first ever Stevenage School Parliament. They met with the Mayor, the Youth Mayor, Stevenage councillors and 104 children from other local primary and secondary schools.  They met together in the council chambers to discuss issues that affect children in Stevenage.  The next step is to share the ideas raised with the children back at their own individual schools, so that they can find out their opinions, these will then be shared at the next meeting and a plan of action created.
