On October 9th, I had
the wonderful opportunity to invite over 100 school children from 10 different
local primary schools up to Parliament to mark Local Democracy Week.
The children were divided into
their school groups before heading off on their own special tours of Parliament
by a tour guide. They visited the House of Commons and the House of Lords
chambers, Westminster Hall, Central Lobby and more! They learnt lots of new
facts and about the history of the Houses of Parliament and how our democracy
works. After the children spent their lunch break discussing all they had
discovered, they were rewarded with certificates for their wonderful behaviour
throughout the day!
I hope all the children and
teachers enjoyed their day out to the Houses of Parliament! Thank you to the
children of Hillcross Primary School, Lonesome Primary School, SS Peter and
Paul Primary School, Merton Park Primary School, Links Primary School, Stanford
Primary School, Sherwood School, Abbotsbury Primary School, St Thomas of
Canterbury and Malmesbury Primary School for being a credit to their schools!
