Members of our School Council came together with other local schools to explore the importance of inclusivity. They learned about what it is like to be in a wheelchair, how it feels to be blind, living with autism and to be deaf. They also had a go at playing wheelchair basket ball and how to sign 'I can Sing a Rainbow' in Makaton.
Four of our School Councillors took part in a sustainability demonstration on the steps of Lancaster town hall today. We made posters and sang songs to draw attention to the issue of climate change.
This March, Miss Forbes and two members of our School Council spent the day in London as representatives of the Lancaster Pupil Parliament. After catching the seven o'clock train to Euston Station, alongside children from 20 other local schools, they arrived in London. When they arrived, they had a tour of The Houses of Parliament, where they viewed a live debate in the House of Lords and held vote of their own in one of the chambers. After that, they went for a tour of London itself, stopping at Downing Street, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square and the National Gallery. It was a great day, with both children representing the school brilliantly and impressing other teachers with their outstanding behaviour and willingness to take part.
