Gary Streeter Meets Ridgeway School Council
On Friday 28th September 2007 Plymouth’s M.P Gary Streeter visited Ridgeway School. The school canteen was full to the brim with council representatives who were eager to discuss ways in which the people of Plymouth can pull together to tackle issues such as global warming and anti-social behaviour. Many questions were asked about creating areas such as youth centres in which teenagers can socialise. Gary was eager to support and answer our questions, showing a keen interest in Ridgeway School Council’s efforts to act against global warming.
We had a great turn out and the meeting was relaxed overall. [View a slideshow of the photos] Continuing meetings like this will be a great way of improving our city and the world around us. It is a fantastic opportunity for young people to put their ideas and opinions across. Gary has also agreed to attend a meeting with Ridgeway 6th form School Council representatives in the near future.
Ridgeway School Council would like to thank Gary Streeter for his time. We would also like to thank the school canteen and of course Linda Winter for arranging the meeting.
