Question Time - The Directory Group

Question time

A visit to Parliament inspired a lively question and answer session from pupils of Glenwood School in Emsworth.

Havant MP Alan Mak hosted an informal session with a group of 24 pupils from the school, which specialises in delivering excellent education for young people with special educational needs.

The students, ranging from representatives of Year 7 to Year 11, enjoyed a tour around the Palace of Westminster before meeting their local MP. Alan gave a short background to his role as member for Havant before opening up the discussion to the floor.

Alan said: “Glenwood’s passion for a supportive and nurturing learning environment will prepare these pupils well for their first steps into adult life. I hope that they enjoyed their visit to Westminster.”

Julie Kirk, who led the trip from Glenwood School, said: “It is wonderful that the kids have an opportunity to come to such an inspiring place.”
