Academy at Town Council 23/01/2017
Students from Knutsford Academy had the opportunity to hold one of their Academy Parliament meetings at Knutsford Town Council in the Town Chambers following an invite from Mayor Cllr Jan Nicholson.
The Academy Parliament meet on a half termly basis with representation across all school years to discuss how the Academy is run and generate new ideas and initiatives that are then fed back to the Senior Leadership Team and Executive Principal Mike Cladingbowl. At the meeting they discussed improving artwork displays around the school and improving sports participation. The Parliament also had an overview of how the Town Council works and the role of the Mayor from Cllr Nicholson.
The meeting was chaired by Sixth Form student Tiane Golaub who commented ‘I thoroughly enjoyed the visit yesterday, especially being able to chair the meeting and to use a gavel to control the session. It was really interesting to gain an understanding of how the Council Chamber works, thank you for inviting us.’
Student Tom Dalzell also added ‘Great experience. Fantastic to conduct our Academy Parliament meeting in such an historic and impressive Council Chamber’.
