Broxbourne Youth Week
Youth Debate Team
Six students ranging from Year 8 to Year 12 represented Broxbourne at the youth debate last week.
The debate was part of the newly established Broxbourne Youth Week. Students were asked to pitch an idea on one thing that could be done to improve the lives of young people in Broxbourne?
The six representatives put forward a proposal to have an informal place where teenagers could ‘hang out’ which would include a cafe and an outdoor gym. Pitching against local schools Sheredes, Turnford and Cheshunt the councillors appeared very impressed with their ideas.
Students involved - Thomas Newman, Victoria Crook, Julia Mazine, James Kettle, Suzanne Mayes and Lina Khaled
