Social Action Group Visit Woolwich Town Hall
The Halley Academy Social Action Group Visit Woolwich Town Hall
On 1st May 2019, The Halley Academy Social Action Group visited Woolwich Town Hall. It was led by young people from the institutions in Greenwich Citizens, including The Halley Academy, Foxfield Primary School, St Paul's Academy and Ravensbourne University. The students hand delivered an invite and belated Easter gift to Mr Danny Thorpe, leader of Greenwich Council, asking him to attend the South London Citizens Accountability Assembly on 7th May 2019 at Southwark Cathedral.
The visit was inspired by the growing number of issues young people from Greenwich are experiencing on a daily basis, and they wanted to personally invite Mr Thorpe to listen to their concerns on 7th May 2019 at Southwark Cathedral. In addition, the visit was to ensure that Mr Thorpe was aware of the Greenwich Citizens' enthusiasm and good spirit with the delivery of speeches and Easter gifts prepared by the younger students in our alliance.
It was another opportunity for The Halley Academy Social Action Group to share their tireless work to make their campaign for misogyny and violence towards women and girls a hate crime with our local decision maker. We would like to thank Mr Thorpe for listening to our thoughts and attending the Accountability Assembly on 7th May 2019. We hope that by having led this public action to share our concerns, we can work successfully with Greenwich Council to improve safety and reduce youth violence in our local community.
