Earlier this year we saw the launch of the new Fareham and Gosport Student Forum. The Student Forum is made up of young people from Brune Park School, Bayhouse School, Bridgemary School, Meoncross School and St Vincent College. The forum is facilitated by Matthew Foster from our team who is the head of the Unloc Student Forums.
The second summit of the Student Forum was held at Meoncross School on Wednesday 29th March 2017. The students spent the day improving their skills and developing their plans for how they want to see education in the Fareham and Gosport area change for the better.
The group were also lucky enough to be visited by Gosport Mayor, Cllr Lynn Hook who spoke to the young people about her journey to becoming mayor and the importance of student voice in education. Cllr Lynn Hook told the group: “What a wonderful idea the whole scheme of Unloc Student Forums is. There are brilliant ideas, enthusiasm and passion behind the students beliefs. In Gosport we really are supportive of this agenda.”
Head of Unloc Student Forums, Matthew Foster, commented: “I’m really pleased with the progress students of the Fareham and Gosport Student Forum are making. These young leaders are able to develop plans to make a real impact on their school lives and to improve their key skills. I look forward to seeing their progress at the end of the school term.”
