The Rushcliffe Learning Alliance Pupil Parliament have democratically chosen this as their issue of the year which we would like to take to Number 10 Downing Street, but we need your support!
Rushcliffe Learning Alliance Pupil Parliament.
School council, Mustard Seed and Eco schools groups meeting to discuss Parliament, democracy and debating.
At our February meeting, we had visitors from the Woodland Trust and Greenwood community project join us to answer our questions relating to our ongoing petition for planting trees locally and nationally.
Children from Reception up to Year 2 have recently taken part in a voting event organised to encourage cross party debating.
The children, aged 4 to 7 years, are each part of three groups within the School; the School Council, the Mustard Seed Ambassadors and Eco Schools.
They were brought together and encouraged to debate several subjects, including whether the School should fundraise for a new water harvester or for soap making ingredients for a community in Uganda this year.
Each child was given the opportunity to discuss different options and give their opinions, before each voted for their preference.The event aimed to give the children an insight into democracy and inspire the next generation of voters and comes following the School’s recent link with UK Parliament and its role within the Rushcliffe Schools Alliance Pupil Parliament.
On Monday 20th May, our 2 Pupil Parliament representatives travelled to Westminster along with 33 other schools in the Rushcliffe area to experience Parliament first hand.
The pupils and their teachers visited the Parlimentary Education Center, The Victoria Tower Gardens and Parliament Square.
