On Tuesday 5th March, the Junior Governors were invited to visit Rayleigh Town Council. We had a wonderful chat with the Chairman about his role and the role of the council. The children were a credit to the school and asked some great questions. The children came away with a better understanding of how the council works and the kinds of things they are responsible for.
"They taught us about the past of the council and how it was split up and Rochford got to be the main council and Rayleigh was a town council. But we visited the best one!" Lamara.
The children learnt about all the responsibilities of the council including running events, managing Lower Wyburns Woods and allotments, running town competitions and the Rayleigh market.
