On Monday 10th October we were delighted to welcome Councillor Gordon from Hackney Council to our assembly. She brought along lots of artifacts that enabled the children to learn about the work of the council and the part that they will one day be able to play in local democracy. The children asked some great questions such as "How does the council make sure that children are listened to?" and "How did you get to be a Councillor?"
This year at Nightingale we have a programme of events planned to teach children about democracy, including our own School Council elections happening next half term. We hope that Councillor Gordon will visit our school again soon.
