The KS2 School Councillors meet the Mayor

On Tuesday 4th March, our KS2 School Councillors (along with those from Layfield and Kirklevington Primaries) visited Stockton Town Hall to meet the Mayor and Mayoress of Stockton (coincidentally on the Mayor’s last day in the role) and gain a little bit of insight into what happens at a full Council meeting. They also learned a little bit of history about Stockton, some of which was news to me too, and enjoyed biscuits and drinks whilst there. Starting the afternoon with the ‘drink reception’ in the visiting dignatories’ reception room, the children met the Mayor, heard the tale of how the Mayoral chain came about and then headed up into the Council chambers.
