Votes for women

Some of the Year Six children from The Hall took part in the Leicester City Council Suffragette event organised by the Leicester Heritage Schools co-ordinator. Thirteen children marched along with other schools from Jubilee Square to the statue of Alice Hawkins, the Leicester Suffragette, in the Market Square. They were dressed up with banners and carried 'home made' slogans and flags. They were accompanied by a 'one man band' as they sang Suffragette songs. In the Market square two pupils from The Hall made a rousing speech to the hundreds of people assembled. It was a great occasion which aptly marked the centenary of the right to vote for women. This History topic has truly captured the interest and imagination of the children.
