The Launch of Student Parliament
On Friday 12th October, thirty-five of the newly elected Student Parliament at Leeds City Academy spent a day training for their new roles for this academic year.
The year 7 to 11 students were given a days training on aspects of their new roles and how to represent the Leeds City Academy student voice as best as possible.
Jason Tattersall, from Blue Circle, guided the students in exploring their qualities as leaders, how to lead and be involved in a successful meeting, and how to help Leeds City Academy be the best possible place for its young people to come.
The day culminated in the first full Leeds City Academy Student parliament meeting. Parents/carers were invited to watch the students deliver the first of their priorities from the five different departments of Health, Welfare, Education, Business and Finance, and the Environment.
The meeting was successfully chaired by Lasharde and Stephanie, with lots of positive objectives set for the coming year.
Students will now meet in their departments fortnightly to develop their manifesto's and help Leeds City Academy on its journey to Outstanding.
Mr Ford, Assistant Principal, said "The students did exceptionally well, they conducted the meeting in such a professional way."
We look forward to seeing the parliament and its members flourish throughout 2018/19.
