Year 8 student, Rhiannon, has been handpicked for her leadership qualities by The Reclaim Project, an organisation which aims to empower young people from working class backgrounds to make a difference to the lives of themselves and others like them. As part of the project, Rhiannon was invited to speak with two of her peers from Lowton and Bedford at The Deal Conference on 17th October 2018. The speech they delivered was so impactful that the girls received a resounding standing ovation from the distinguished audience which included key figures such as Donna Hall, CEO for Wigan Council (pictured). Well done Rhiannon!
