Pittville's Parliament Trip to Houses of Parliament
Posted on 12-Dec-2018 to Latest News
Pittville Parliament has a vital role in school, ensuring that the views of pupils are heard and taken into consideration.It is also a great way for pupils to build their confidence by getting involved with those from other years, taking on projects and speaking to teachers and senior management about their ideas.
On Monday 26th November, twenty four pupils went on a trip to the Houses of Parliament as a reward for having represented their tutor groups in Pittville Parliament during 2017/18.It is great to make the link between Pittville Parliament and then the actual Parliament which is making laws and governing the country.
We were lucky enough to be able to visit both the House of Commons and the House of Lords, but unfortunately we had to leave just before the Prime Minister came to address the Commons on Brexit.That would have been a lively debate!
We then took part in a workshop on democracy and different ways of getting your voice heard. It was a fantastic opportunity for the pupils to see democracy in action and hopefully has inspired them to get involved in changing things for the better in the future. Who knows, we may even have a Prime Minister from Pittville one day!
