Democracy in Action!Democracy in Action!

29 Sep 23

Students from all over Flintshire were invited by Hannah Blythyn MS and Jack Sargeant MS to take part in the ‘Democracy in Action Day’ held at Deeside Sixth. Following a warm welcome from the chief executive of Coleg Cambria, Yana  Williams, students worked hard in groups to debate the issues important to them. The students created a youth manifesto with issues such as sports and leisure appearing from every school. Ysgol Treffynnon Head-girl Abbi Frost explained that quality work experience is something that could be planned for by the Senedd. Abbi and the YT team made some very sensible suggestions! Carole Green from ITV Cymru News then hosted a question time event where the students enjoyed posing challenging questions to the politicians.
