Primary school conferences

What local issues are important for our primary school children? This was the aim of five school council conferences requested by the Young Mayor of Tower Hamlets. Each event was led by a school council from a different secondary school and was organised according to the different Local Area Partnership (LAP) areas. The issues at the conferences varied from knife and gang crime, to smoking, and drugs.
The school councillors from 30 Tower Hamlets Primary Schools took part in the first borough wide children’s voices event in Tower Hamlets. They spent the morning discussing, presenting and voting on local issues and problems that they wanted to be addressed, led by a team of trained secondary school students. In the afternoon the children took over the borough’s debating chamber to discuss and vote on their key three issues. The debates were minuted, a report was sent back to the schools and then onto the Tower Hamlets Young Mayor and the council.
