The School Council were all given a badge and picture of the Lord Mayor and then got to try on his gold chain. Take a look at the photographs! All the School Council members spoke very confidently, were very polite and showed excellent manners. We had a fantastic morning! May be there is a future Lord Mayor in the School Council?
