Politicians in the making

Students from the San José de Calasanz school in Bigastro visited the Town Hall yesterday. There they were able to see the council chambers and the Mayor’s office, they even got to sit in his chair.

Fourteen of the students were chosen to take part in a mock council session working through an agenda of 13 points with hopefully less colourful language than sometimes happens in the real sessions.

Finally the students had a question and answer session with the the real Mayor, Raúl Valerio Medina who I hope gave them truthful answers!

Who knows, some of these children may be town councillors themselves one day. At least now they will have some idea of what to expect.
