Once upon a time, the Debate Club went on an adventure!

It was Thursday 27th June when we left school at 9am to go on a very perilous walk all the way to Bath Community Academy. B&NES Youth Parliament 2013 was the event being hosted by the academy, with the students and staff of DAFBY running the day.

After a formal speech to start the day, we were split into groups to produce presentations on four key topics identified by the young people of B&NES: safe places, well-being, transport and training for work.

Lunch (which was delicious) preceded the formal presentations, attended by invited visitors from the council and local organisations. We made lots of new friends, made stronger as a team, and overall it was a great experience. Hopefully we will attend again next year.
