On Friday 8th October, we were delighted to welcome Munira Wilson MP to our school. During her visit, Munira undertook a tour of the school provided by four of our Y6 pupils (in full WWII Costume due to the Y6 WWII day). Munira met with our Headteacher and then hosted a question and answer session with members of the School Council.
Munira also joined some of us for a photograph of our new community use defibrillator, which had been purchased as a result of a fundraising campaign.
Munira was hugely impressed with the facilities and premises of our school. She visited all of the year groups and saw the children (and teachers) working hard. She complimented us on how engaged the children were and how hard everybody was working on their lessons.
The school council members had prepared some questions for Munira by visiting her website and understanding some of the things that she had been campaigning about. Questions ranged from local to national issues and included asking Munira about her campaign against the third runway at Heathrow, her role as the Liberal Democrat spokesperson for Health, and what qualifications you needed to become an MP!
Munira was hugely complimentary of our pupils and particularly how engaging they were and how they communicated and spoke so maturely. It was a wonderful morning and we are hugely grateful that Munira was able to share some of her valuable time to visit our school.
