SJB Parliament

Year 6 demonstrated their debating skills on Friday with the motion: Should all bullies be punished?

15 children debated the key issues involved in front of Year 3, 4 and 5. The children were told that debating also takes place at Westminster and is a key principle of our democracy.

All the children in the audience expressed their own thoughts but they were reminded that it is only those elected during elections who will vote in The Houses of Parliament. The 15 children took on the role of MPs voting on behalf of the people.

It was an extremely close vote and the end result was 8:7 voting in favour of punishment.
