The Member of Parliament for Stevenage, Stephen McPartland, visited Year 6 at Lodge Farm School for a Q&A session as part of their project on Parliament and the 'Big Vote'.
Stephen McPartland MP said, "It was great fun taking part in the Q&A session with Year 6 pupils from Lodge Farm School. I really enjoyed my visit and hope to be invited back soon to see more of the school and other classes. These visits always demonstrate how many young people are interested in politics and are happy to ask the tough questions."
Nicola Randall, Assistant Headteacher and a Year 6 teacher, invited Stephen along to the school and commented after the visit, "Our Y6 pupils found Stephen McPartland's visit very informative and the message he gave about wanting to make a difference has certainly inspired many of our pupils to be more interested in politics. Following the visit, the children have now got big plans in mind for writing their own manifestos in preparation for the 'Big Vote'. National Parliament Week has been a fantastic way to help pupils understand how our country is governed and to explore the important role MPs play within our community. Who knows, we might even have the future Prime Minister here at Lodge Farm!"
