The EYPUK National Session took place at Liverpool Hope University from Thursday June 30th to Sunday 3rd July where over 100 delegates engaged with their fellow delegates, who came from different backgrounds and areas across the country, worked together to discuss and reach a consensus on issues affecting them and the European Community as a whole. The session involved a wide-range of activities, from committee work and the General Assembly to team-building and a Euro Village for which Broughton Hall girls provided an Austrian buffet.
The aim of the National sessions is to select a team to represent the United Kingdom at one of the EUYP's flagship events, an International Session, to welcome new members to the EYPUK Alumni Association and to help delegates build confidence and new skills in debating. We are extremely proud that our newly appointed Deputy Head Girl, Lucy Skelhorne, has been selected to attend one of the International Sessions in the autumn term; it is even more of an achievement, as Lucy is the first Liverpool student to be recognised in this way.

All 9 members of the Broughton Hall team, which included 1 student from Notre Dame, have become alumni of the Youth Parliament which enables them to apply to sessions across Europe as a delegate or an official and the EYP has sessions all year round and they can visit countries as exotic as Georgia and Armenia with other young people from all over Europe. The girls were all successful in gaining the respect of the organisers for their professionalism, hard work and team building prowess.
