Sheffield Youth Cabinet Election Winners

On 24th February five Sheffield Park Academy students were elected to the Sheffield Youth Cabinet to represent Sheffield East.  SYC is part of Youth Parliament and young people were elected from all areas of Sheffield to represent the views of other young people in the city.  They will have the opportunity to work with local politicians and have a real impact on policy making. 

 

Our students were among eight selected to stand for Sheffield East and as part of the process they had to run the election in school with minimal support and guidance from staff.  This involved campaigning across all year groups on their own priorities and ensuring that the resulting election was efficient and fair.  As a result, more than 70% of students in the academy voted and qualified us for Silver Democracy Award from SCC.

 

We are incredibly proud of our students’ hard work and their success, claiming all 5 seats in Sheffield East.  We hope this opportunity will be just the beginning of great successes for them.
