Image of Sixth Form College Students Debate at Youth Parliament Conference

Students of Law at The Sixth Form College, Esther Alawode, Jacob Finch and Ellie Blakemore attended the Wirral Youth Parliament Conference on Tuesday 11 November 2014, at Wallasey Town Hall to debate two motions related to the emotional well-being of young people. 

The Youth Parliament Conference is a way in which young people have the opportunity to have their voices heard and make a difference to the communities in which they live. It involves Elected Members giving up their seats for young people and allows the opportunity for group discussions and an open debate in the Council Chamber.

Various subjects were debated including a motion proposed by Esther that social media is a cause of social isolation. Jacob strongly opposed the motion but it was carried by the house. 

Head of Humanaties, Paula Blakemore said, “It was a great evening of political engagement from The Sixth Form College delegates.”
