Our wonderful Community Cohesion children took part in their final session today at Rochdale Town Hall.
Over the past nine months our children have been working with pupils from Hamer Primary School and students from Rochdale 6th Form, talking about what Rochdale means to them.
Before starting to write their speeches, each of the triads created a manifesto deciding what they felt as individuals they should bring to their groups. The triads then designed fantasy maps, drawing and reflecting on what they wanted the ‘ideal Rochdale’ to look like. This then led onto lots of discussion about what they wanted to feature in their speech.
Over the past few weeks the children and students have been working hard to learn their speeches.
Mrs Cunningham, Ms Regan and Mrs McAdoo had the pleasure in accompanying the children to Rochdale Town Hall today, and as always they made us proud to be a part of Marland Hill Primary School. The children delivered their speeches in the Grand Hall to some very important people from the council, police and education department, who fed back and answered some of the points raised in their speeches.
All the adults in the room were blown away with not only the high standard and quality of the speeches, but how well the students and pupils presented themselves.
