London Democracy Trip 2023

47 Year 9 students from Liskeard School embarked on a two-day trip to London on March 2nd and 3rd to learn more about British values. The trip was a resounding success, with the students displaying excellent behaviour throughout.

The group began their day by visiting the London Central Mosque, where they were given a tour of the impressive building and a talk on Islam. From there, they headed to Parliament for a tour of the iconic building and to witness MPs debating in the Houses of Common and the Lords discussing amendments to current laws in the House of Lords.

The students then participated in a workshop on Law and Power, where they channelled their inner MP. Sheryll Murray MP for South East Cornwall joined them at the end of the workshop to answer any questions they had.

The day ended with the group checking into their Youth Hostel and enjoying a dinner before heading out to watch the incredible West End production of Wicked. The show included themes of self-esteem, diversity, and identity.

The following day began with an 8 am start and breakfast at the Hostel before heading to Kidzania, where the students explored different careers. After lunch, the group visited the London Eye, which provided one of the best views of London's skyline.

After a quick ice-cream and souvenir stop, the group crossed the river to catch the Clipper to Putney. Their coach met them at Putney, where they settled in for the coach ride home.

The staff received several comments about the excellent behaviour displayed by the students during their time in London and would like to thank them for making the trip an absolute pleasure to be on.
