On the 21st January 2019 the Mayor greeted the School Council on arrival at the Town Hall and invited us to his chambers.
Then the Mayor and the School Council had a Q and A. The School Council had met before the event to
decide on what questions they would like to ask. They learnt a lot about the Town Hall, when it was built and who the first
Mayor of Blackpool was. The also learnt how you become a Mayor of Blackpool.
The Mayor then took the children into the Council Chambers where they learnt about democracy and then they
split into two groups and had a friendly debate.
The children enjoyed the event and learnt so much more about being a Council representative.
