West Leeds Youth summit
Lesson: PSHE and citizenship
Class: Year 5 Year: 2022 - 2023
Four members of year 5 went to the West Leeds Youth summit at the Leeds Civic Hall this week - they found out about democracy and how the city council works. They had the opportunity to ask the Lord Mayor and the councillors questions. Myla asked "What do you find difficult about your job?" The answer from the Lord Mayor was "Time to get things done." The pupils took part in a consultation exercise where they had to prioritise where spending should go on children and youth activities for the next year. The morning gave the children a great insight into democracy and has inspired them to think how they could make a difference - watch this space!
