Scottish Parliament

My class and the parallel primary seven class visited the Scottish Parliament today. We really enjoyed ourselves. Rhona Strachan was in charge of our group, introducing us to the work of the Parliament and a brief history of it. We then met MSP George Foulkes who did a half hour question and answers session with the children. George was great and held the children’s attention really well. Finally we went into the debating chamber and watched the MSP’s in action debating concessionary travel. The children really enjoyed it. I hope it inspires some of them into a career in politics.

Thanks Rhona and George for a great experience.
