24/1/07 – Nythe Primary to Visit Civic Offices and meet the Mayor
I have organised for the Nythe Primary School Council to come and visit the Council Civic Offices on Friday 2nd February.
The School Council will visit the Civic Offices at Euclid Street, being welcomed by the Mayor in his Parlour. Following meeting the Mayor and hearing about why democracy and politics is important they will go to the Council Chamber.
Within the Council Chamber the pupils will hold their School Council meeting in the chamber. This is where Swindon Borough Council hold the Full Council meetings.
I hope the visit will provide a useful in-site in to local politics and allow the children to see the purpose of their activities. Democracy is now an important part of children’s education.
I am looking forward to joining the children on their visit and will report back following the event.
