Annual Youth Council Debate

Moorside High Schools Student Council were invited to attend the annual Youth Council debate in Salford City Council’s chambers.  The debate this year was whether people aged 16-18 should be allowed to vote.  First, the chair Josh started a warm up debate about whether mozzarella is the king of cheese.  After a heated debate with some passionate speeches it was decided that it is not.  Then it was down to business.  Members of the Youth Council and Salford City Councilors gave speeches for and against.  The debate was then opened up to the floor.  Faye, Lucy and Beau gave great speeches for the motion.  Faye used the Brexit vote as an example of how votes can directly affect young people’s futures.   The Chair then asked for a vote and the majority voted for votes from 16.  It was interesting to see how debates in the Council work and we enjoyed to sit where the city’s Councilors sit.  It was nice to see the deputy Young Mayor Kayleigh again as she was a school councilor last year.  We are looking forward to next year’s debate.
