Patcham High School is very proud to announce it will be taking part in the National Make Your Mark Campaign. Every year Patcham High takes part in the Brighton and Hove Youth Council elections where students stand for election among their peers to represent the voices and views of the young people of Brighton and Hove. This year The UK Youth Parliament is asking young people around the country to vote for the issue they want to be the national campaign. This will then be debated on in the House of Commons by the UK Youth Parliament members.
As a Rights Respecting School Patcham High students will be learning about the issues to be voted on in Life Skills lessons over the next two weeks. In keeping with the UNICEF Rights Respecting Convention on the Rights of the Child this addresses Articles 3,12,13 and 29. After the students have learnt about the different issues the whole school will go to the polls on 10th October to vote for the one issue that they believe is most important for the young people of this country.
Watch this space to find out which of the issues our students have chosen to be debated on in the House of Commons!
