Four students are campaigning for votes to be representatives of the Slough Youth Parliament.
Slough's Youth Parliament ensures that young people in Slough are able to influence and be involved in decision making in the town. The Youth Parliament is made up of 11-19 year olds from across Slough, and includes members from underrepresented groups. The Youth Parliament meets twice a month, and usually host guest speakers from partner agencies to inform discussion and decision around pertinent issues. Westgate students were provided with more information from Giovanni Ferri, Youth Voice, during assemblies encouraging them to put themselves forward. Four Westgate students; Breanna and Aisha from year 10, Nawid from year 9 and Ubaid from year 8 have all embraced the challenge. They committed themselves to a three hour campaign workshop in December and are now keen to get their campaigns underway this week. Each of them have independently produced campaign videos, which are brilliant! Every student at The Westgate School will have the opportunity to vote for one of the four candidates and voting will close on 31st January 2019. We are looking forward to seeing the candidates’ campaigns and we wish them luck!
