24th January, the school council visited Jarrow Town Hall where we met the Mayor and Mayoress. We had a tour around the town hall and got to sit in the Mayor’s Chamber where we held the deputy mayor and Mayoress’s chains and the Mayor’s mace – they were really heavy and very expensive! After that, we got to sit in the council chamber where the meetings take place and we found out about the Mayor’s job. Before we left, we signed the visitor’s book; many famous people had signed it too, such as Princess Diana. We had a lovely time and learned a lot.
