During parliament week, which took place in November, representatives from the Student Council were invited to make political banners to represent their views on issues affecting their lives. They were shown an example used by the Suffragettes whose legacy changed the political voting system for millions of people. This inspired them to make a banner based on the recent Make Your Mark ballot in which ‘Affordable, Accessible Transport’ was identified as a key priority. The students brainstormed their ideas and came up with a cohesive plan for optimising the impact of their banner. The banner is on display in school and the students thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the event and developing their team working skills on how to communicate effectively using banners.
