BLC School Councils get together

Yesterday representatives from 8 of our primary and secondary schools (over 60 children and young people) met together to discuss what they would like to see to improve their school and community lives. This event was held in partnership with Young Lambeth Co-op (YLC) and facilitated by poet and coach Adisa. Young Lambeth Co-op want ideas and opinions from as many children and young people as possible to help shape their offer for children and young people for out of school activities. The school councils worked in mixed groups to collage headlines and news photos of what they cared about and started to formulate SMART ideas for short term goals. The participants had strong ideas on wanting peaceful school and out of school settings and activities that could support and grow their talents. In the next few weeks school councils will collate opinions through voting, on what pupils want YLC to prioritise for funding and future fundraising. Many thanks at everyone who came, to Adisa for facilitating, YLC, Stockwell Primary for hosting and all the pupils and staff.
