School Council visit Civic Hall - January 2019

Eleven members of the school council were invited to the Civic Hall to meet their local councillors, visit the council chambers and learn about democracy and local decision making. They had the opportunitiy to take part in consultation activities in order to have a voice and make a difference for young people in their community.

The children really enjoyed taking part in a workshop where they had to decide how to spend £35,000 on activities for young people in their area. Their ideas were collected by the councilllors to help them decide how they would spend the Youth Activity Fund for youth projects in the Inner North East area.

The children had the opportunity to meet and have a photograph taken with Mrs Eileen Taylor, the Leeds councillor who will become the city's first black Lord Mayor later this year.
