Sixth Form Political Debate Featured

Rate this item
(0 votes)

Year 13 students took part in a political debate with local representatives from 3 of the main parties in Wales today as part of an initiative to encourage more young adults to engage with the democratic process. 

Students were provided with presentations from Cllr Louise Emery (Welsh Conservatives), Cllr Aaron Wynn (Plaid Cymru) and Dominic Casoria (Youth Officer for the Welsh Labour Party in Clwyd West). 

They also had the opportunity to forward questions on issues they feel are important including: whether the voting age should be reduced to 16 for all elections in the UK and Wales; should tuition fees be scrapped and university made free for all; should there be another public vote on Brexit to allow more young people to have their say. 

Students were able to engage in a lively debate in which they had the opportunity to listen to and consider a range of different views.

Our thanks go to our 3 guests for generously giving up their time to support this event. Also to the students for their involvement and for providing a variety of stimulating and thought provoking questions.
