School Council visit The Town Hall

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.
