School Council Visit to Jarrow Town Hall 27.9.16

Our School Council, Head Girl and Head Boy and their Deputies were invited to Jarrow Town Hall to meet with the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of South Tyneside.

The children started by studting the outside of the Town Hall to look for clues as to its age and association with famous events. The visit then moved inside to look at the Jarrow Crusade exhibition, where the children learnt that our visit almost coincided with the 80th anniversary of the start of the march.

The Mayor invited the children into his parlour where they learnt about the ceremonial duties of the Mayor. They were able to handle the Mayor’s chain and mace. The visit ended in the council chamber where the children learnt about local democracy and had a turn at bringing the chamber to order!
