Redruth School Awarded The Silver PADLPosted on: 19/07/2019
Will S and Tom S today represented Redruth School at the County Council Chambers to receive the prestigious Silver PADL award from Hilary Frank, Chairman of the Council.
The PADL Award recognises the excellent practice of School Councils across Cornwall. where Student Voice sits at the heart of the constitution, enabling all students to express their views, feelings and wishes in all matters affecting them. These School Councils empower students to challenge bullying and discrimination, improve wellbeing, behaviour and in turn raise attainment. They are examples of active citizenship and democracy.
PADL stands for Promoting Active Democracy Loudly. Will and Tom are both active members of the School Council, representing their year group at regular student council meetings throughout the year.
