West­min­ster visit for pupils

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Pupils from Trin­ity High School demon­strated their po­ten­tial as politi­cians of to­mor­row dur­ing a re­cent visit to West­min­ster.

Their local MP, Ged Killen, was their guide dur­ing the visit to Lon­don, at which fifth and sixth year so­cial sub­jects pupils were given an in­sight into the in­ner work­ings of par­lia­ment.

They learned of the rich his­tory of the House of Par­lia­ment and House of Lords and the day was com­pleted with a work­shop in which pupils locked horns in com­pet­i­tive de­bates to prove they are politi­cians in the mak­ing.

Dur­ing the visit, pupils paid trib­ute to the vic­tims of World War I in the Im­pe­rial War Mu­seum, where they laid a wreath at the foot of the‘Nery Gun’to hon­our the fallen.
