School Council Makes History
Gateford Park's School council made history on Wednesday, as they became the first children ever to hold a meeting in Bassetlaw District Council's meeting chambers.
The children met local councillors and officers and found out a little about how local government works. They learned how to use the special microphones in the council meeting room and had a great time.
The children came away with lots of Bassetlaw DC goodies - which always goes down well. Our local councillor, Bill Barker, commented that the children are a credit to the school and the Worksop community. We are sure to have a future Prime Minister (or two!) among them!
Our thanks go to Miss Robinson, Mrs. Hibbert, Mrs. Matthews and Mrs. Norton for their great work with the School Council, and to Cllr. Barker for his kind welcome and arranging the transport for us.
Great job, Team GP!
