Our Pupil Parliament Trip

On Friday the 13th  of October – unlucky for some, but not for us! – Olly, Rosie, Finn and Mille left at 9am to go to Pupil Parliament, at the Netherwood Hotel in Grange. We all set off really excited about the day ahead of us, preparing to meet John Bercow (the speaker in the Houses of Parliament). When we arrived, we started off with a welcoming speech from David Bone. Then we did some fun ice-breakers to get to know other schools. After the ice-breakers, we headed for a well-deserved break. Later on, after break, we had time to ask John Bercow questions about his life and his job. Then we had a delicious lunch of pizza and chip!

Finally, we had an amazing debate on whether or not ordinary people can save our seas from plastic pollution, or should the government step in some more? Did you know, by 2050 there will be more plastic in our seas than there are fish? Shocking isn’t it? Take a look at our photos and the poster we created and have a think about how we can make a difference.
