Leeds Youth Voice aim to give children and young people a voice; helping to make Leeds become a more child friendly city. They are involved in the Leeds Youth Council and the UK Youth Parliament. They share our values of Participation, Democracy and Citizenship.
Once a year they organise a Leeds Youth Voice Summit and invite Year 5 pupils from all over Leeds to come and talk about the important issues young people face, both in Leeds and across the UK. We took three Year 5 pupils along to learn how to campaign for some important world issues. They also got a tour of the Council Chambers and attended a question and answer session with the newly appointed Lord Mayor of Leeds.
June 2018: Generous June #bekind #kindnesscostsnothing
This half term Pupil Parliament have been working hard on their Generous June Campaign. They are launching their Ash Tree #bekind challenge for the month of June. Each child in the school will have a challenge board with kindness challenges on which they have to complete over the month. There is also four blank spaces for children to add their own kindness challenge ideas. Children who successfully complete the kindness challenges and those who can create the four most originally kindness challenges will be entered in to our prize draw at the end of the month! Good luck!
January 2018: Pupil Parliament visit The Civic Hall.
Pupil Parliament had a fantastic time visiting The Civic Hall in Leeds and meeting the Lord Mayor of Leeds. They had the opportunity to visit the council chambers, have a tour around the Civic Hall and also had tea and biscuits with the Lord Mayor herself. This was a great opportunity for Pupil Parliament and we are very grateful to the Lord Mayor for letting us visit.
December 2017: Pupil Parliament pre-loved book stall.
Pupil Parliament worked hard to collect pre-loved books for their second hand book stall at the Christmas Fair. They managed to sell nearly all of the books they were donated and made over £100. This money will be used to go towards their Pupil Parliament trip to meet The Lord Mayor of Leeds in January. Well done all!
November 2017: The Great Ash Tree debate.
For Parliament Week UK Pupil Parliament organised 'The Great Ash Tree debate'. This was a opportunity for children of Ash Tree to put their questions about school life forward to a panel of staff members. On our panel we had Miss Lennon, Mrs Campbell, Mr Hicks, Mrs Abbott and our very own Pupil Parliament member Isabelle. Children asked a range of questions and the adults got to give their opinions and views on the subject matter.
