Jeremy Corbyn Visits LCS

Jeremy Corbyn Visits LCS

Hundreds of sixth form students welcomed Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Opposition, to Littleover Community School on Thursday, where he announced a new public transport policy for under 25’s.

He also held a Q&A with the group and, for some students, a visit to his ‘U25 FREE BUS TRAVEL’ bus.

The level of anticipation was high before his arrival as, for many students, a man they would normally only see on television, was there in person. 

The visit launched the Labour Party's “Free bus travel for under-25‘s” policy.

The visit launched the Labour Party's “Free bus travel for under-25‘s” policy.

Mr Corbyn was joined by the Shadow Transport Secretary, Andy McDonald, who said the new policy, designed to provide 13 million under 25s with free bus travel, would ‘replicate London’s bus scheme and this proves how the scheme would work efficiently’.

I was lucky enough to spend some time speaking to Mr Corbyn about Education and Littleover school life. He agreed with me that, as sixth formers, we are lucky in the sense that we are connected to a school which gives us an ‘even wider support network’, giving pupils past and present, a ‘familiar and friendly’ relationship with staff’. This was linked to earlier comments he’d made about the importance of mental health. Corbyn stated ‘we live in a society where mental health feels like it’s something we shouldn’t want to talk about and that’s not how it should be’. From talking to other students after the event, this appeared to be one of the topics which stood out to many people, especially since the school’s reinforced support system has been put in place.

Other issues addressed throughout the day included Brexit, Russia’s potential nerve agent attack and university tuition fees, demonstrating a lively interest in current affairs by the students – controversial questions were even picked up by national newspapers who quoted Mr Corbyn’s response.

However, the main subject of conversation was Labour’s new transport policy and how this would impact so many of us so positively. It appeared to be a very successful day overall which, importantly, encouraged even more young people to get involved in politics and discuss current affairs that could potentially shape their futures.

Headteacher Mr. Venkatesh added that this was an important day for the school, and that he was keen to encourage more students to become better informed about politics and engage actively in their local communities.
