Take Over Day
The River Beach representatives on Junior Youth Council (JYC) visited Arun District Council to participate in Take Over Day along with other JYC representatives from other local schools. The session began in the Council Chamber where the Chair of Arun District Council welcomed all present and shared how the District Council is made up of elected members who represent the places where the children live. Children were able to use the councillors microphones to share speeches to become the Chair of JYC for the oncoming year.
They then went to various council departments in groups to learn about the work of the Council and to have a go at different roles. This provided a great insight into the world of local democracy and the world of work.
