#MakeYourMark assemblies at AHA!
This week’s Achieve Together assemblies have been led by Florence Orchard, current sixth form student and member of Gedling Youth Parliament. Florence was joined by fellow members, Abigail Hutchison, Myles Kirk and Elodie Lammiman-Allen, as she talked to students about the exciting opportunity they have to “make their mark” in parliament on issues affecting young people.
Our students will each receive a ballot paper for them to vote on the one issue they would like the UK Youth Parliament to campaign for on their behalf. Students can choose from; a curriculum to prepare us for life, votes at 16, protect LGBT+ people, support for young carers, transport, first aid education for all young people, mental health, make the invisible visible, protect schools budgets from damaging cuts and work experience hubs for 11-18 year olds. Voting will take place during guidance and Florence will come back to school to deliver the verdict.
Well done and thank you to Florence and the Youth Parliament team!
