During his time in Year 6, Sam was elected to the role of Junior Lord Mayor. The role was shared so Sam had to wait his turn which came in August when he represented St Mary's as a Y6 student (even though he'd just left!)
He attended a Hiroshama Rememberance service, a meeting about youth knife crime, a Road Peace event at the Cathedral, the Merseyside Fire & Rescue Graduation ceremony including a full scale emergency demonstration, and a Town Crier Competition at the Museum of Liverpool.
Sam said, "It was really fun, I enjoyed the whole experience. My favourite part was the Town Crier competition. I felt really proud to be representing the young people of Liverpool."
Sam is interested in going for a term as Young Lord Mayor or joining the UK Youth Parliament now that he's at Secondary School, and is going to be joining his new school's Debate Mate team, who have recently won competitions at local and nation level.
Sam’s mum has said, “Thank you for helping Sam to have this great opportunity, we are all really proud of him!” As are we at St. Mary’s! Well done Sam, we wish you well in all your future endeavours.
