British Values –Β Democratic Government

The School Council visited Jarrow Town Hall where we were given a tour and had the chance to meet the Mayor and Mayoress of South Tyneside. We learnt all about the Town Hall’s history, including the significance of the Jarrow Crusade.

We visited the Mayor’s Parlour and got to hold some very expensive items belonging to the Mayor! We visited the Council Chambers and even got to sit in the Mayor’s chair and sign the Visitor’s Book alongside other important visitors, including Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Philip. We learnt about what a Councillor’s role involves and how they help make a difference and represent our local community. A very inspirational visit!
