Politics students visit City Hall

Dated: 15 November 2018

 
Inside the iconic City Hall building
 
Earlier this month, some of our politics students were invited to take part in a consultation that is helping to facilitate involvement of young Londoners in directly informing the Mayor’s Countering Violent Extremism strategy, as part of a wider consultation with Londoners.
 
On the day students discussed their views and concerns about these topics and wider attitudes towards policing with a representative from the Mayor’s Office for Crime and Policing.
 
Politics students Ebony Bucknall and Sadiyah Akther took part...
 
"On the 5th of November a group of six of us attended a politics trip at the Mayor's Office, City Hall, to be a part of the Mayor's important work on countering extremism.
 
We were asked questions about the PREVENT strategy, such as 'Who would we tell if we had a friend who we suspected may have extremist beliefs?' and 'How could we make people in London feel safer?'.
 
It was a great experience to be contributing to the Mayoral Offices's consultation process along with our peers. Not only did we discuss key issues in policing and crime, we were also able to have a tour around the building and have a look at where the GLA sit.
 
Overall, this experience was very interesting and useful to our own politics knowledge as we were able to draw course links to multiculturalism and integration."
 
Politics teacher Miss Durant said "Our students were not only able to articulate their views and experiences in an eloquent and considered manner, they also listened to others, taking on board a range of perspectives and provided tangible and practical solutions to the questions posed to them."
