Houses of Parliament
School Council 2018-19
UNCRC Article 12 -We have the right to express our views, feelings and wishes and to be listened to.
WOW! What an amazing experience! Southmead’s School Council visited the Houses of Parliament (on Friday 8th March). Our tour guides shared lots of exciting facts and took us on a terrific tour, including the House of Commons and the House of Lords, where we saw the gold throne, on which the Queen sits when she opens Parliament. We learnt that the House of Commons is linked with the colour green, whilst the House of Lords is red. The School Council also learnt how democracy works; that the school council has a similar role to the government, ensuring how every voice can be heard.
