Runshaw student Sharlize Munro-Labuda attended The Conservative Party Conference which took place at the start of October in Manchester.

Sharlize is a first year student at Runshaw studying A Levels in Law, Sociology and Geography. Outside college, Sharlize is a member of the Sea Cadets, and along with her fellow cadets, attended the Conservative Party Conference for a meeting with the Prime Minister and the Education Committee to discuss non-formal education and potential reforms. Sharlize’s time there was very informative and she thoroughly enjoyed meeting the Education Committee and listening to their presentations.
