REVISION CONFERENCE AND ‘FAREWELL TO THE EU’ TEA PARTY!

Y13 politicians have concluded their studies with two significant events…

On 1st May we embarked on a new venture in running a joint revision conference with A Level Politics students from Aston. This was an opportunity to gain a refresher on the skills needed for each section of the examination papers, as well as a chance for girls to share different ideas and perspectives with the boys. There was of course plenty to talk about, in particular the political implications of Brexit!

On 7th May we concluded our time together as Handsworth politicians with an EU-themed tea party! The photo below gives you a flavour of some of the foods we came up with, complete with EU flag! The selection was really quite diverse, ranging from scones and jam for the UK to Greek yoghurt, croissants and pizza! Whether Remainers or Leavers, we all wanted to mark this significant moment in the UK’s political evolution, with departure from the EU now imminent!
