MP gets grilling from kids
Petersburn Primary pupils relished the opportunity to grill MP Neil Gray during a recent visit to the school.
Mr Gray faced the P5 and Base 6 pupils to answer questions on life as a Member of Parliament, both at home and in London.
The questions varied from“how do you vote?”to“what car do you drive?” and everything in between.
As part of the school’s Send My Friend to School project, Mr Gray collected a petition in the form of Jigsaw pieces aimed to show the five things that Petersburn pupils feel are important when it comes to school life.
The pupils chose things like teachers, equal access for those with disabilities, school lunches, clean water and toilet facilities.
Mr Gray said:“One of the best parts of my job is talking to school pupils and the questions that they ask really keep you grounded. I think I shattered some illusions though when I said I didn’t drive a Lamborghini!
“I have promised to hand in their petition the next time I am in London and I am going to add my name to it as well as it is a really important issue that they are trying to raise.
“I congratulate Acting Head Shirley Queen, class teachers Miss Todd and Mrs Stephens and, most importantly, the pupils for the fantastic work that they have done.”
