Sale High students find their voice
9:00am Tuesday 2nd October 2012 in News
SALE High School students were invited to attend the Youth Charter Olympic and Paralympic Youth Legacy Debate at Media City. The event was hosted by the Youth Charter and chaired by the The Rt. Hon. John Bercow MP, the speaker of the House of Commons.
Three year 9 students from SHS, Nick Brown, Maya Dew and Muhammad Akram represented the school at the debate and had some hard hitting questions for the Speaker.
The event was a great success and the students got to learn about the parliamentary process and why it is so important to vote when you reach 18.
