The Schools’ Parliament for Liverpool hosted their first meeting on Tuesday 1st December. Our Y6 representatives met up virtually, via Zoom, with other students, from primary and secondary schools around the city. They were able to ask questions and voice their opinions on education within our city. Jonathon Jones, Director of Education for Liverpool, joined the meeting and answered one of our questions regarding children’s mental health and emotional well-being. It was great to know that pupil voices are being heard by those in charge of our city and even our country. We look forward to our next meeting in January.
Four of our Y6 children joined up with children from across the city to participate in the Schools’ Parliament Zoom meeting, on Monday 26th January. They met to discuss Liverpool's journey to becoming a UNICEF 'Child Friendly City' and to about the launch of 'Liverpool Year of Writing'. Cllr Barbara Murray, Cabinet Member for Education, Employment and Skills, also introduced the children to the Write Here, Write Now ten-minute writing challenge.
