Hustings at Leicester College

[08/07/2011 | No comment]

On 24th June I went to a ‘hustings’ debate organised by students at Leicester College. The students, who are adult learners doing the citizenship model on the pre-access course, were in two teams: Say No To Size Zero, who are campaigning to raise awareness about the dangers of unhealthy body images, and Heart to Heart, who are campaigning to save children’s heart surgery at Glenfield Hospital. In the end, Heart to Heart got the largest number of votes, but I think both teams did really well – and if they ever want to go into politics they will be a force to be reckoned with!
