Our school council spent a very important afternoon at the Civic Centre visiting the Mayor in his special chambers. They had a fabulous time and have found out so much about his role, being the First Citizen of the Borough. It is considered the highest honour to become Mayor and the children were fascinated to find out the many duties he carries out across the year. Our school councillors, being democratically elected themselves, were interested in finding out about how the elections for Mayor run and how their roles have many similarities to his. It was an inspiring visit, the councillors were a credit to the school and were complemented many times on their articulate questioning skills and their superb manners. They now have the important task of cascading all of this information to the rest of their class.
