EHS Students visit the Houses of Parliament

Following their very enjoyable trip, Mrs Power, Inclusion Support Officer said;

"We had a fantastic experience at the Palace of Westminster. Our group visited the House of Commons just before Prime Minister's Questions. We stood in the chamber just above the dispatch box on the side of the opposition and learnt how MPs debate and vote on matters of state.

Next, we had the amazing opportunity to sit in the visitors gallery of the House of Lords, where listened to members debating the upcoming 'Brexit Bill'.  

Finally we went on a tour of the iconic building - particular highlights included visiting Westminster Hall, where King Charles I was found guilty of treason, and also looking at the numerous statues of former Prime Ministers in the lobby of the House of Commons. Hopefully the visit will inspire all participating students to take an interest in determining our country’s future - who knows, maybe one of them will go on to be a future Prime Minister"
