The first Cluster School Council meeting between local schools in the borough was held last week with the children meeting the Mayor of Bracknell Forest, Cllr Tina McKenzie-Boyle to discuss Democracy.
Young people participating in the meeting came from 8 local schools: Wildmoor Heath Primary, Uplands Primary, Crowthorne Church of England Primary, St Michaels (Sandhurst) Primary, College Town Junior, New Scotland Hill Primary, and Owlsmoor Primary and Sandhurst Secondary School who also hosted the meeting.
The children discussed with the Mayor why they wanted to be elected and explained that they wanted to share ideas and make their schools even better.
Sandhurst Secondary Students spoke to the school councillors about why their voice as school councillors was so important and shared some hints and tips.
Cllr Tina McKenzie Boyle said:
I really enjoyed meeting the young people for their first joint council meeting. All the children participated and had some great questions.
They were very bright and I can tell we have some future Borough Councillors at these schools.
