Town Hall Visit - Part 1
Some of our school councillors wrote letters to our local councillor Sue Cooley to ask for the zebra crossing and yellow zig-zag markings outside our school to be re-painted. Although we had initially been told that there was no money in the budget for this, our letters changed the councillors’ mind and the markings will be re-painted in the next few months.
As a thank you for all of our hard work, school councillors Miah, Grace, Eleanor, Isaac, Jessica and Tamzin (along with Mrs Palmer and Miss Livert) were invited to Manchester Town Hall. We met with Councillor Sue Cooley, who gave us a tour, which included the main council chamber where all the important decisions are made. We even got to sit in the Lord Mayor’s chair! We also spoke to Councillor Kate Chappell, who is responsible for the city’s roads. We asked her lots of interesting questions and she has agreed to visit our school once the markings have been re-painted.
Town Hall Visit - Part 2
On 15th January 2014 we visited the Lord Mayor, Councillor Naeem Hassan, at the Town Hall. After he had told us all about the history of his position, the children asked him lots of questions about his work. Finally, he took us on a tour of his parlour, which included a large sitting room, three bedrooms (which are now used as offices) and a bathroom. We all left with a fantastic souvenir – a Lord Mayor pin for our jumpers!
Speed guns at the ready!
Nine members of the school council were chosen to take part in the traffic survey, using speed guns to monitor the speed of cars travelling on Button Lane past the school entrance. These were Miah, Grace, Luke, Eleanor, Summer, Saul, Isaac, Jessica and Tamzin. The children also appeared in the Manchester Evening News.
