Pupils from Park Spring Primary School in Swinnow visited the Houses of Parliament – and gave Pudsey Conservative MP Stuart Andrew a real grilling!
After going on a tour of Parliament, pupils met with Mr Andrew to discuss issues ranging from the recent EU referendum to the new Prime Minister and reforms to SATs.
Mr Andrew said:
“It was great to see the pupils so engaged in politics – it’s something that I think is so important and that is why I’m always happy to welcome schools to visit their Parliament. The pupils posed some challenging questions, and were very interested in how everything worked. They even taught me a few ghost stories from Parliament.
“Park Spring Primary do excellent work with their School Council, most recently litter picking in the community and holding a coffee morning for elderly people. This kind of citizenship education is great for people to learn at such a young age.”
