Alfriston School has been awarded a Gold Democracy Award by UK Youth Parliament. This has come about because we achieved 88% participation in the 2013/14 Buckinghamshire Youth Parliament Elections. The presentation event will be held on June 10th.
Our pupils voted in the South Bucks and Chiltern constituency where the following young people were appointed:
MYP Faiyaz Amin
Deputy MYP Kate Jameson
Deputy MYP Becky Mohr
We also took great interest in what happened in the Wycombe constituency where our very own Laura Gonsalves was a candidate. She received a fantastic 1824 votes and was duly confirmed as a Deputy MYP.
The new MYPs will continue working at a local level and will also attend district and regional meetings. We are looking forward to a visit from Faiyaz in the coming weeks.
