Our School Council consists of pupils from Year 1 upwards.
Cluster Parliament meet Patrick McLoughlin
Ruby and Isaac attended the first Cluster Parliament of the year. The special guest was Sir Patrick McLoughlin, the MP for the Derbyshire Dales and the Chairperson of the Conservative Party.
The children asked him questions about life as an MP. We found out that he used to be a miner and he did not go to university. We also found out that Westminster Palace is overun by mice and that he has three offices in London! He was once caught doodling on TV during a long and boring meeting!
Our older school councillors went to Lady Manners School to meet an organiser of the charity Refugease. They learned about how we can help refugees travelling through Europe by donating things that will make a real difference to their lives. Click on the button to see some more photos.
Members of Parliament
We held elections at the beginning of the year to democratically choose who would be our Cluster Parliament Reps. The successful candidates were Ruby & Isaac.
Here is our Cluster Parliament logo. Can you spot the Longstone feather?
