A trip to City Hall for the Debating Club!
On Monday 14 October, The Junior Debating club (as well as Year 5 and 6 School Council representatives) were invited on a tour of City Hall!
The girls were very excited to see and learn how the Mayor of London and the London Assembly come together to make the important decisions that shape our city in this beautiful and iconic building. They attended a talk from a City Hall representative and were thrilled to have access to the main debating room, the Chamber room. This girls were able to walk the spiral staircase to the top floor and enjoy the view of the city.
They learnt many facts not only about City Hall, but of the great city of London past and present.
