Year 12 student is appointed as a Head Member of Youth Parliament

We are delighted to hear that Year 12 student, Reeya P, has been appointed as a Head Member of the Youth Parliament in the West Constituency.

Reeya has always had a keen interest in politics and current affairs and has continued with this whilst studying A Level’s in History, Politics and Psychology in the sixth form. Being aware of these interests, Miss Phillips, Reeya’s politics teacher, encouraged her to apply for the opportunity to become a member of the Youth Parliament and supported her through the process. Applicants were tasked with creating a compelling campaign and presenting this to the Board of Trustees. 10 candidates participated in the election and with over 2000 votes cast, Reeya was successful, gaining 469 votes.

As a Head Member of the Youth Parliament, Reeya is responsible for finding out the concerns and needs of other young people in her constituency, and representing these views to decision-makers on a local, regional, and national level. Reeya will meet with MPs and local councillors, organise events, run campaigns, make speeches, hold debates, and ensure the views of young people are heard.

Mr Williman congratulated Reeya on her achievement, “We are very proud of Reeya’s recent appointment as a Head Member of the Youth Parliament for the West Constituency. Well done Reeya and we look forward to hearing about your constituency work over the coming year”.
