On Wednesday 13th March the school council children went to observe a Douglas Council Meeting at the City Hall. The trip linked in well with the role of the School Council and followed on from the Tynwald Q&A Tour as it helped the children to understand the wider role of the council and how they meet to make decisions on behalf of others to make a positive contribution to society.

Before they went into the meeting, they had juice and biscuits with the Mayor who spoke to them in more detail about her role and gave them the opportunity to ask questions. During the meeting the children had to sit very quietly to ensure they didn’t disturb the running of the meeting, they all did this and the Mayor was very impressed with how they all conducted themselves!
