Hi, I am Hannah Perton and I am the Home Secretary for our School Parliament.
On Thursday afternoon, 30 November 2017, the School Parliament took a visit down to Raunds Town Council to see the Mayor Nick Beck.
Everyone had lots of fun learning more about what it is like for the mayor and the rest of the staff on a daily basis when you are part on the local council.
Councillor Nick Beck spoke with us all regarding our ideas to help improve the community in Raunds and at St Peter’s CE Academy including meeting a talking penguin.
We talked about possibly having a year 5/6 trip to France to explore our language use furthermore; we also talked about a litter pick and a walkathon to raise money for the school. Lastly, we talked about fundraising for charities such as: Brook Farm and The Air Ambulance.
Some Parliament members told me,
Keira: ‘I liked that he doesn’t like public speaking, however, he still became mayor and tries to overcome it.’
Jamie: ‘I liked finding out about the talking penguin bin in the building we went to.’
William: ‘I liked how he answered everyone’s questions clearly.’
Lila: ‘I liked the tour around the council building.’
All the pupils had a fun time even in the very cold weather and especially enjoyed the squash and biscuits.
Thank you Cllr Nick Beck
