Parliament Week

Parliament Week

Posted: Mon 12 Nov 2018   |   Assemblies

This week Highfield is taking part in Parliament Week. On Wednesday 5E will be working with Konflux theatre group to put on a play in a day for the whole school about parliament and democracy. This morning I told the children the story of Emmeline Pankhurst and The Suffragette movement. I could see in the children's faces how shocked they were to hear that one hundred years ago women could not vote in UK elections. Childen are a great judge of fairness. Next week we are looking forward to a visit from our local MP Fabian Hamilton who will be meeting the school council and visiting the school.
