School Council at AGGS
The school council at AGGS is an extremely important part of school life and girls are not only encouraged to run for election but they understand that they represent the student voice. There are two council representatives elected from each form for every year group and the girls meet during morning registration on a weekly basis. The girls take the school council meetings very seriously as they do their roles within the meetings. Each girl takes on a specific role ranging from chair to publicity and they are encouraged to commit to these roles for the academic year. The girls work on a range of ideas and are guided through their decisions by the staff who work with them. The school council is a very successful part of the extra curricular citizenship within the school and it allows the girls to become accustomed to the workings of democracy and have a very valued student voice.
The UK Youth Parliament at AGGS
The UK Youth Parliament is a fantastic opportunity for young people to become involved in both local and national politics. The Youth Parliament has been running for a number of years and as a Trafford school the council and the CYPS organise the election process, meetings and associated events. The pupils at AGGS have been actively involved in the UK Youth Parliament for a number of years and we are proud to have had our pupils elected as members of the Youth Parliament for 5 consecutive years! Each year the youth Parliament is publicised in school and we are always overwhelmed by the interest shown by our girls. The pupils are then entered into the election process and begin the campaign with assistance from both school and Trafford council. The voting then takes place in January and the girls are responsible for publicising their manifestos and take part in assemblies in school. Last year we were very lucky to have Elmyra Chinje and Sonia Bamford elected as YMP’s and this year Claire Kellett and Shereen Patel have been elected as YMP’s. We are all very proud of their achievements and look forward to witnessing their future political careers!
