Meg visits the new Meadowhead School

Sunday, March 18, 2007

Meg Munn MP recently visited the new £21 million Meadowhead School. The building opened in January, with the old building being demolished. This new facility comes 5 years after Meadowhead received Language College status and has excelled ever since - with a range of languages such as French, German, Spanish, Italian and even Mandarin.

 

Whilst there Meg visited pupils to talk about her role as the local MP, they asked her a series of prepared questions. Meg then asked for their opinion on the voting age. She has been running a debate via her website to find out what pupils opinions are on what age they should be allowed to vote. Y7 pupils, who are pictured with Meg below, voted as follows:

 

12yo   14yo      16yo    17yo    18yo

1          22        2          1          0

 

Meg commented:

 

‘The new facility is a fantastic investment for education in the area. I know from talking to pupils and teachers that they are delighted with the new building which offers an environment fit for 21st century learning. Newfield Secondary and the new Springs Academy have also been redeveloped - our commitment to improve education of our children is making a real difference in Heeley constituency.

 

I have been interested in what pupils think of the voting age and the pattern emerging is quite clear. Those pupils who are nearing the voting age of 18 think that 18 is the appropriate age for them to be allowed to vote. Many feel that they do not know enough about politics to make an educated judgement at a younger age. However, when talking to those aged 10 or 11, they think they should be allowed to vote at a younger age as they feel that their voices should be heard as much as the rest of society.

 

I thank the pupils for an enjoyable visit and wish the school well with their new school building.’
