Last week students from Orchard Hill College visited the Mayor of Hillingdon in his chambers in Uxbridge. Asiya, Fardin, Ryan, Charlie and Evie were able to give a short presentation to the Mayor about the college and the facilities available to them in the Hillingdon area. They also shared their ideas on how Hillingdon could be improved for young people with disabilities. The Mayor was very interested in the students’ views and gave some really useful feedback on the presentations.
The Mayor and his wife gave them a tour around the Mayor’s Chamber and allowed them to see the Mayor’s robes and mace.
Student Evie, who is very passionate about student advocacy and has a particular interest in the Mayor of Hillingdon said “it was a really fun and enjoyable day, I am glad that I got to show the Mayor my presentation and I hope he will take on board some of my ideas!”
A big thank you to the Mayor for making this visit possible and for spending some time getting to know the students!
