Student Council visit to hackney Town Hall

News ‐ 2 Dec 2019

On Monday 2nd December six year 7 and 8 members of Student Voice had the opportunity to visit Hackney Town Hall at the invitation of the Speaker Councillor Kam Adams.

The students were treated to a private tour of the Town Hall in which they were shown and informed about the history of the Borough of Hackney, the role of the speaker and how democracy works at both a national and local level.

The students asked excellent questions and were excited to inform the Speaker of their roles in the schools committees. One student was very excited to see a portrait of her Grandfather who she did not realise had been a precious speaker for Hackney!
