Congratulations to Sherwood School Head Girl Maisie who has been elected to Greenwich Young People’s Council, she has already demonstrated excellent leadership qualities in her role as Head Girl and I am sure she will bring great ideas and enthusiasm to the council.
Greenwich Young People’s Council (GYPC) is a group of elected young people which exists to represent the views of children and young people from across the borough and to influence decision-making within the council.
The group exists to raise awareness of and promote the active and meaningful engagement of young people in politics, democracy and citizenship. They do this by:
- running campaigns on key issues that affect the lives of young people in Greenwich
- holding events throughout the year for young people across the borough
- advising on and, where appropriate, taking action on policies, activities and services that affect young people in Greenwich
- identifying and delivering change, where GYPC can themselves make change.
