On Friday the 11th November Tim Would, the Youth Parliament representative for Redcar and Cleveland, attended the House of Commons to debate the issue of votes for 16 and 17-year-olds. He stood up to speak and stressed the fact that if his mother could work two jobs every day of the week then the Youth Parliament could make a big difference in a year. A very proud moment for Redcar Academy that our year 10 student took the opportunity presented to him to make his point heard. Well done Tim.
