A PARK Hall Academy student has been elected as the new member of the UK Youth Parliament for Solihull.
‘Exemplary pupil’ Bradley Smith was officially handed the title at a celebration event held at the Civic Suite in Solihull on February 26.
The 16-year-old will now represent his school and Solihull as a whole - on the Solihull Youth Council, the West Midlands Youth Council and the United Kingdom Youth Parliament (UKYP). He was recently presented with a certificate by The Mayor of Solihull, Councillor Ken Hawkins.
Park Hall was also awarded a trophy for the school with the most democratic participation which recognises the school with the most number of students voting in the UKYP elections.
Nikita Basra from Solihull School will be the borough’s other UKYP representative with Arden Academy student Alex Jenner and Khazim Mahmood from Alderbrook School elected as deputy members.
Park Hall vice principal Lesley Browne said: “This really is an outstanding achievement and we would like to congratulate Bradley and Nikita on their election success.”
