Pupils learnt about local Government politics and tried on the mayoral chain during a visit to the borough mayor’s parlour.
Children in Years Three to Six at Meadow Vale Primary School, in Priestwood, visited Councillor Jennie McCracken at Easthampstead House, in Town Square last Thursday.
Gaynor Dalrymple, Year Five teacher, said: “It was really lovely.
“The children got to sit in the mayor’s seat and ask her lots of questions.
“The chair of the school council then chaired a council meeting and all the pupils had to speak through the chair.”
Pupils also presented to the mayor what they had learnt at school about rights and responsibilities.
Mrs Dalrymple added: “It was good for the children to learn how it all works in their own town.”
