Greenwich Citizens UK at The Halley Academy
On Tuesday 24th of April, The Halley Academy was filled with hopeful community leaders eager to advocate and work for change. It was led by The Halley Academy Social Action Group, comprising of five students in Years 9 & 10, and a range of students, parents/carers, friends, faith leaders, artists, professionals and university students came together to share their hopes and concerns with some of the most influential politicians of the borough.
The event was supported by students, including performances from our talented Year 11 students, and the wider community in order to help build a Greenwich where politicians listen to the Greenwich Citizens UK agenda and are challenged to include their priorities in the council's agenda for the next four years. It was an opportunity for our young student leaders at The Halley Academy to share their work how they want to work with local politicians to improve our community.
Centred around three issues, it was an evening of testimony, stories and ideas around the issues of safety, misogyny and violence towards women and girls, and the making of Greenwich as a more welcoming borough for all.
