Young And Junior Lord Mayors Sworn In

A GROUP of Liverpool’s young people have sampled a taste of civic life as they were officially sworn in as Junior and Young Lord Mayors at the Town Hall today (2 Nov). They are made up of 22 young people from primary, secondary and special schools in the city. Each young person will spend a month shadowing Lord Mayor, Councillor Roz Gladden, at suitable events such as Remembrance Sunday, Civic Service, Freedom of the City celebrations through pensioners’ parties and school assemblies. It is the seventh time the scheme has been run, and all of the candidates had to give a speech explaining how they would promote the positive profile of the city of Liverpool and that of children and young people in the city Lord Mayor, Councillor Roz Gladden, said: “This is a great opportunity for our young people to become involved in civic events, find out what is happening in their city and see how democracy works.” “I am delighted that so many of our young people have shown an interest in civic life and will be more than happy to have them assisting me at events during my next few months as Lord Mayor. “I am sure they will do a great job representing the young people of Liverpool over the coming year.” The pupils and the schools they attend are: YOUNG LORD MAYORS Ruby Bains – St Hilda’s High School Anton Bibby – Calderstones Science College Ellen Boyland – St Hilda’s High School Eva Carroll – Notre Dame College Alex Dunn – Broughton Hall High School Harry Georiou – Sandfield Park School Asal Hajimohamedi – Holly Lodge Girls’ College Janani Murugesh – Alder Hey Hospital Youth Forum Leah Russell – Clarence High School Morgan Soul – Bank View School Abhijith Subramanian – Calderstones Science College Patrick Clarke – SFX College JUNIOR LORD MAYORS Ashli Ashcroft – Kirkdale St Lawrence Primary School Olivia Cranney – Arnot St Mary Primary School Mia Ferguson – Smithdown Primary School Isabelle Fitzgerald – Middlefield Primary School Freddie Hall – Longmoor Primary School Azrah Ismail – Windsor Primary School Finlay Kelleher – St Anne’s Stanley Primary School Scott Leath – Broadgreen Primary School Holly Mallon – St Michael in the Hamlet Primary School Barry Sheen – Holy Name Primary School Eva-Elizabeth Wood – Alder Hey Hospital Youth Forum Zac Wilde – Liverpool College
