Do young people talk about their feelings enough?Is it important to talk about feelings so that it becomes a day to day activity,or does talking about our feelings open us up to bullies and misunderstandings? Llysfaen Primary hosted the event in conjunction with the Royal College of Psychiatrists in Wales Debates for Young People 2017. A multi school panel argued for and against the motion ‘This house believes that young people should talk about their feelings.’
The audience of students at Llysfaen Primary had the chance to question the student panels, and the specialist experts put forward their points of view, before the vote on the motion. The Children’s Commissioner for Wales also attended the event and was extremely impressed by the high standards of thinking, reasoning and confidence of the speakers. The debates were Chaired by a Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist. Our pupils were on the winning team! Da iawn blant.
