The School Councillors from Years 5 and 6, Michaela, Che, Llywella and Rex, spent an informative morning at the Civic Suite . When they arrived they completed a quiz about the London Borough of Lewisham, looked at Mayoral Regalia included former and current mayoral Maces and tried out the Mayoral chair. They then went into the Council Chambers , where they met the Deputy Young Mayor of Lewisham, Tekisha Henry from Sedgehill. She explained how she was elected and what her role is . They then went to meet Sir Steve Bullock, the Mayor of Lewisham. He showed them his Mayoral Chain and Badge and explained the work of Lewisham Council. The Councillors asked him about their policies and questioned him on his achievements and role as Mayor.
At the end of the morning Sir Steve announced the winners of the quiz and we were delighted to hear that it was………..St Augustines! A fantastic end to a thought provoking and interesting morning.
