Alumni Student Councillors

Two Sunderland Councillors were invited into school to discuss the role of local government to our Year 12 Law students. The Councillors were both former Southmoor students! Martyn Herron and Lyall Reed talked to the students about topics ranging from dealing with antisocial behaviour in the area, to how Sunderland Council spends its £100m budget. It was particularly interesting when the Councillors spoke about their vision for the future of Sunderland and how it can compete with Newcastle by keeping hold of its young talented people. Students asked insightful questions of the guests and even spoke about their aspirations for a future career in politics.
