Student Council Forum

I have the honour of organising the Student Council Forum for Primary Schools across Three Rivers. On Thursday we were invited by elected District Council members Alex Michaels (Liberal Democrat) and Reena Ranger (Conservative) to hold our meetingĀ in the Council Meeting Room. All but one of our local school councils were represented and over 30 children and adults had a brilliant democratic experience: Alex had arranged for three managers to come and discuss their specific roles and try to convince the Forum to do something in support of their area: Road Safety, The Elderly or Playgrounds.
