On Tuesday 22nd November 2016 the school Council went to The Houses of Parliament with Mr Norman and Mrs Littlewood. We travelled to London on the train and then to Buckingham Palace on the London Underground. During the day they we visited the Palace, Parliament Square, Big Ben and were fortunate to have a tour of Parliament which included being able to sit in and watch the House of Lords and the House of Commons in action.
The people who attended completed a workshop all about Making Laws where they formed their own Political Party and had to make laws of their own. The workshop leader commented on how our laws were some of the best she has come across.
