Pupils' voices to be heard

Youngsters in the Isle of Man will have more say in their education with the launch of an initiative today (Wednesday).

Ten Manx primary schools are taking part in the Pupil Voice Forum initially, but it's hoped all 35 will eventually be involved.

The Department of Education and Children says the forum will complement existing school councils and allow pupils to discuss issues such as being healthy and staying safe.

Meetings will be held three times a year, with the first taking place at Braddan Primary School at 2.30pm today.
