ST EDWARD'S MIDDLE SCHOOL - SCHOOL COUNCIL TRAINING
Posted on 11th October 2019 at 14:38
Students from all year groups at St Edward's Middle School in Parsonage Lane attended a training session run by the charity Learning to Work at the De Vere Beaumont Estate, Burfield Road, Old Windsor. They learned how democracy works before voting two students from each form onto the school council.
Their own MP - Windsor's Adam Afriyie - came along to talk to the children about the workings of the House of Commons. Students elected onto the School Council will get a chance to visit the House of Commons later in the school year.
Mr Afriyie said: “I was deeply impressed and inspired by the questions and enthusiasm, but also the level of knowledge of politics. These training sessions will really help the pupils to find their way in life.”
The event they had been attending was designed to teach them the skills of listening when they are in meetings and good teamwork.
