1st Years Maia and Merry joined six other young women from across Cornwall for a Takeover Day in celebration of International Women’s Day.
Organised by Cornwall Council, the event took place at New Country Hall in Truro where the girls took the lead in a mock council session and had the opportunity to meet an MP and interview leaders, discussing leadership and women’s roles.
When asked about the day, the girls commented: We applied because it sounded like a great opportunity to experience something new. The day was really good and we enjoyed taking part in the social media posts the posts the most. They continued, ‘the mock council felt very real as there were lots of real councillors there’.
Well done for taking part girls!
