Last half term, our very lucky school council representatives from each class went on a trip to the Houses of Parliament! We were fortunate to be joined by the school council representatives from Hayes Park- our very first trip together! Despite a very early start to the day and a long journey into central London, the children had a fantastic day learning all about the history of the Houses of Parliament, the different roles that politicians play and the value of democracy. The children were given the unique experience of a guided tour which even allowed them to stand within the House of Commons and the House of Lords. Not only that, they even carried out their own mini debate with Hayes Park. The children beautifully demonstrated to the public our behaviour code: Ready, Respectful, Safe and were complimented by a police officer for their lovely manners!
