Chiswick School pupil speaks in House of Commons
On Friday 17th November the UK Youth Parliament debated universal free school meals and food security for young people as part of their campaign, ‘Food for Learning’. More than 200 Members of Youth Parliament from across the UK participated in the House of Commons debate.
Having been elected onto Hounslow’s Youth Parliament earlier in the academic year Mohammad was provided with the opportunity to participate in a lively debate. In addition to having a tour and learning about how this age-old institution functions, Mohammad was invited to address the house which he did with gusto and aplomb. Mohammad said “I want to say a massive thank you to the staff at Chiswick School. It was a brilliant day at the House of Commons and I got a chance to speak about standardisation of free school meals. This was only possible due to the tremendous support and continuous motivation I get from the school which always gives me strength and honour”.
Mr Gill, Mohammad’s Head of Year said “so many of our students are doing incredible things and it was a delight to see Mohammad speak in Westminster. He has a very bright future ahead of him and we are proud of what he has achieved”.
