    Ynyshir School Council

    Ynyshir School Council visited the Assembly on Wednesday and it was good to see the young people engaging actively in in the process of democracy and in looking at the plans for their new school. I managed to tip off Education Minister Jane Hutt that they were in the public gallery as she was answering questions in the Assembly:

    Jane Hutt: I am delighted to see that we
    have Ynyshir school council in the public
    gallery. I am sure that more school councils
    will be watching, knowing that these
    questions are being asked today. Throughout
    Wales, school councils are engaging in those
    important points of developing their
    understanding of democracy and citizenship,
    and it is delightful that they are engaging
    with us by attending in the public gallery.
