30 Nov Young Peoples Safety Group Conference
Over 80 young people met at JRCS
On Thursday 22nd November over 80 young people met at the tri annual Young Peoples Safety Group Conference at JRCS. We had two tables made up from the Student Voice WE ACT Team. It was a very interesting conference where we asked the young people where they felt safe and unsafe within our borough and also within our own schools. It was a fascinating session as we were able to freely discuss any concerns we had. It was clear that we all felt safe within the JRCS building but not in the surrounding areas of parks and unlighted areas in the borough. It was great to get to mix with other students as this always breaks down barriers for us young people.
The information we gave will be used by officials at the Town Hall to make our community safer which is a great thing to be involved in.
Students involved were:
Leeyah Mukendi-Banza 7I, Mohammad Daroysh 7I, Monjolaoluwa Olayiwola 7I, Owen Scott 7I, Antoinette Nvula Mavumba 8I, Adiyat Sharif 9B, Arafat Abiola 9C, Bisma Tahir 9D, Chelsea Boanerges-Kihan 9D, Ciara Fidami Khida 9D, Mihaela Costache 9D, Megan McCabe 9F, Lottie-Mae Benjamin-Swale 9J, Tierney Morris 9J, Yasmine Graham 9J, Andreja Zemeikyte 9J, Athalia Okonkwo 9J, Chelsea Bowers 9J and Esra Staugaite 9J.
