Houses of Parliament Visit

Posted on: February 6th 2018

On Wednesday 20 students visited The Houses of Parliament. Students were welcomed by local MP Bambos Charalambous who gave them insight into what daily life was like as a MP and then had a chance to ask him some questions. They really enjoyed listening to him and have requested he visits the school to spend some more time with him.

This was then followed by a tour around the Houses and finalised by an engaging workshop. This involved students debating against each other, discussing interesting and topical issues, such as whether the voting age should be lowered to 16. Mario, 17 felt the experience ‘gave me a true insight as to what Politics is all about; the vibe is exciting and fast paced.’
