Today St Aidan’s welcomed the Mayor of Gateshead into school. As part of Year 2’s Geography topic, they have been learning about the local area of Teams and decided to invite the Mayor of Gateshead in to share information about her role in the local community. After a short presentation of Year 2’s learning this half term, we were given the opportunity to ask questions to the Mayor and her macebearer in order to find out more about their jobs. We found out that the Mayor is elected by her fellow councillors, much like we are for our school council, and represents Gateshead at important meetings and functions. She looks after the schools, hospitals and transport in Teams.
