Stella Creasy MP met with the Student Leadership Team and Principal of the College and took part in a question and answer session with students from across the College. Students discussed their views on a range of issues that matter to them such as housing, education, health, transport and welfare. Questions were also asked on topics including crime, immigration, Europe, Britain’s relationship with the US and the local environment.
Stella urged the many first-time voters in the audience to exercise their democratic power by registering to vote and to turn out at polling stations on the 8th June 2017. She shared her passion for an inclusive and fair society.
With the general election just around the corner, it was really useful to hear first-hand from an MP and learn more about how my vote can help make a difference to our country
It was a pleasure to return to Sir George Monoux College; I was deeply impressed with the depth of questioning and interest students showed in the issues affecting their lives, families and the country
Stella met with the College leadership team to discuss the College’s new academic offer which includes 6 Learning Pathways and a 10am start time to lessons from September 2017 onwards.
It's good to see Sir George Monoux College being so innovative in how it manages the learning day for students. It makes a lot of sense to start lessons at 10am as many studies have indicated that this improves young people’s well-being, health and ultimately their academic performance
We were delighted that our local MP was able to spend an afternoon with our staff and students, to encourage them to register to vote – this is real-life, real impact and a wonderful example of learning and democracy in action. We thank Stella for making space in her diary to meet with us to discuss the changes we are bringing in at the College to improve young people’s well-being
