Question Time – The Leaders’ Debate.
This afternoon Miss Down’s Class held a fantastic Leader’s Debate. Each party leader had an opportunity to put forward their party’s pledges and challenge the other leaders’ ideas.
A wide range of complex issues were discussed, in great detail with pupils demonstrating their mature, well-thought-out understanding.
Here were some of the fantastic quotes:
‘If you vote Transform – Britain will stand safely’
‘Defence ties in with policing’
‘We want to work towards create a model world’
‘Discrimination is a massive subject’
‘We want all young people to get on the right track for life’
‘We are different from all the other parties’
‘We think everyone should get a chance’
‘We are relying on the public’
‘Changing each day in the present and every day in the future’
