Youth Summit Council Meeting – Morley Town Hall

On the 21st November, school council representatives from years 3, 4, 5 and 6 were invited to Morley Town Hall for the Youth Summit Council Meeting. Throughout the day, the children were given a Heritage tour of the Town Hall and learned about the history of the building. Following this, the children were involved in the Climate Emergency workshop and learned how Leeds City Council plan to tackle climate change and pollution. They were so inspired by this that they were eager to speak to their classes and excited to hold an assembly to support the Climate Emergency as a school. After this, they met with councillors, the Lord Mayor of Leeds, the Town Mayor and Mayoress and were given the opportunity to ask questions, learning more about these important roles. After lunch, the children were given the chance to have their say on the Youth Activity Fund. They worked as a team, voted for their favourite activities and learned how the council get to spend the budget. The children were impeccably behaved all day and did our school proud. They asked some really good questions, were polite and very sensible. We all had a wonderful day.
