On Thursday the School Council were very lucky to visit the council chambers and meet the Deputy Mayoress of Basingstoke. We were able to ask her lots of questions to find out about her role. We then held our own meeting, led brilliantly by our chair Ashton and vice chair Jack. We even got to use the microphones so had to take turns to share and debate. We visited the Mayor’s Parlour and then went for a walk around the peace garden before returning to school. The Mayoress was very impressed with the children’s behaviour and how well they spoke about St Mark’s School.
