Washwood Heath Academy students were invited by Councillor Waseem Zaffar to attend a workshop entitled Many People: One Birmingham led by the historian Professor Carl Chinn at the Council House Chamber on 1st February 2017.
Our Y9 pupils were able to learn from the prominent historian who spoke passionately about our great city and about how Birmingham became such a culturally diverse place to live. Pupils enthusiastically took park in a question and answer session with the historian and also gave suggestions to the councillor on how we can bring the younger sections of society together to unite more and to be proud of our city.
The pupils all thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and the chance to attend the Council House Chamber, along with meeting their local Councillor Mariam Khan. They really did Washwood Heath Academy proud.
