On Wednesday 7th June Ribblesdale played host to the one and only Ribble Valley Question Time with the candidates Nigel Evans, David Hinder and Graham Sowter from the Conservatives, Labour and Green party. The pupils were asked to create 6 starter questions which were well thought out and provided a grilling for the politicians. The event was extremely well attended and whilst the pupils are not eligible to vote, they were certainly engrossed. The event was also streamed live on Facebook and reached well over 2000 views with comments from parents praising the school and stating it was an 'excellent event' and 'well done for getting pupils involved'. As the General Election loomed, pupils from Ribblesdale were certainly more informed and keen to get voting in their own ballot on Thursday 8th June. Who said young people don't like politics.
