Students from Felpham Community College have taken part in the prestigious Arun Youth Council Debates Event.
This was held on the 18th November at the Arun Civic Centre.
The students, joined by Dan O’Kane, History teacher at FCC, took part in a number of debates focusing around current news.
These included relaxing American gun laws, should parks be statutory? and a heated debate about whether the UK should reintroduce grammar schools.
Four local schools from the Felpham and Bognor area attended the event and students enjoyed having the chance to use their voice and get their opinions heard by others.
Students Isabelle Saunders and Alyx Keen said: “We appreciate and enjoy the fact that our views matter at FCC and we can help make things change.”
