Citizen Students Present their Views on Education ( Published: 02/05/2017)

Over the past two months, three students from Whalley Range 11-18 High School have been working with a campaigns team from Oxfam to put together a campaign to take to the Mayoral candidates for Manchester.

On 1st May 2017, the students took to the stage at The Lowry theatre in front of a packed crowd of 1000 people, sharing their thoughts regarding the changes being made to the education system.

The girls spoke very eloquently about their concerns, putting their point across in a very succinct way. The pupils even had the chance to speak to Andy Burnham in person, asking him for a meeting about their concerns should he become the next Mayor of Manchester.

Mr Webster, who attended the event, said:

It was wonderful to see the girls taking such an active role in politics. It must have been incredibly scary up on that stage, with 1000 people looking at them, but the girls handled the pressure brilliantly and did the school proud.

We would like to congratulate the students on their excellent work and thank Oxfam for their commitment to the project.
