Leeds Children's Mayor Candidate: Hilltop Primary School
Name: Abdullah Aswat
School: Hilltop Primary School
Slogan: A city for all to be proud of!
I would like to be young mayor of Leeds because I believe I can make a difference.
I know Leeds is a great place to live, but I believe my policies would make Leeds an even better and safer place to live, a city for all to be proud of.
If I became a mayor I would introduce the following.
• Youth passport- this would give under 14’s free entry to sports and educational activities. I would also encourage all primary schools to open their playgrounds in the evening and at weekends so that children could play safely and live healthier lives.
• I also would like the children of Leeds to have free school transport because parents are at work. If I was mayor and if I got chosen I would make sure we get about 4 mini buses in every single school.
• Litter- If I was mayor I would have more bins to stop people dumping rubbish on the streets. Make Leeds recycle more. Ban Chewing from public places or face fine.
• Safety-To reduce car speed in built up areas. More awareness and alert people to the dangers of knife crime. Make it law to wear cycle helmets.
• Set up a temporary shelter to provide food, warmth and counselling for homeless people. Also make sure that the council gets food and clothes for homeless people.
• During school holidays and weekends we should have volunteer teachers, who give children the option to progress in their studies. This would help towards end of year exams. This would help promote the school with the achievements of their results.
My aim for the people of Leeds is for a city they are proud to a live in. A clean place with people of all nationalities and all religions living happy together. A place with the least crimes of all the major cities.
Finally a city visitors that can enjoy their stay and always remark that this is the place I want to return to.
BE PROUD OF OUR CITY OF LEEDS!
