The Secretary of State for Education and the Local MP meet Perry Wood

25/11/2015

 

Perry Wood MPs meet MP Robin Walker and Nicky Morgan, Secretary of State for Education. The children of Perry Wood elected their own MPs to represent them in the school parliament as part of our work on Democracy in the Griffin Schools Trust. We invited our Local MP, Robin Walker, to meet them all.
 
He was so impressed with the work Perry Wood are doing, he invited us to be the only school to meet the Education Secretary, Nicky Morgan at The Hive in Worcester.

The children confidently interviewed Nicky about her ambitions as a child, the skills needed to be an MP and the best part of being a Secretary of State. Simra told Nicky we have free clubs because we are a Griffin Schools Trust school and asked her what her favourite club was when she was at school – it was debating Society – so the children told her we have one of those!
