Visit to Ashford Council Chambers
Last Wednesday, some of our school council members from Years 4 & 5 were able to visit the Ashford Council chambers alongside school council members from Dymchurch Primary School.
The children participated in a mock council meeting, where they learnt all about the role of the newly appointed Mayor, Jenny Webb. They even got to ask her questions, using the special microphones!
Afterwards, the children enjoyed afternoon tea in the Mayor's Parlour. It was interesting to see the original robes from the 1970s that are still worn by the Mayor and a chance to hold the incredibly expensive Mace, used to bang on the door before a council meeting begins!
The children came back feeling inspired and excited for their next school council meeting!
