Last week GCSE Citizenship students took part in a Digital Surgery with Andy Burnham. Students were able to question him about his target to end rough sleeping by 2020. They explored the topics of sustainability and how to make Manchester more environmentally friendly. Our students joined force with students from across Manchester to explore issues that affect young people. This was a fantastic opportunity to have a conversation with a high profile politician. Andy explored his journey into politics and gave our students exciting ways to get involved in politics.

On Tuesday 21st March AGGS welcomed Amelia Womack the Deputy Leader of the Green party. This was an amazing opportunity for our students to hear a young politician share how she entered the political world and her journey to being the deputy leader. She spoke passionately about Green Party policies and answered lots of the students questions.
