Secondly Edward Davey visited St Andrews and St Marks Junior School. Here Edward met with the headmistress and was taken on a tour of the school where he answered questions from each class before meeting with the School Council and the School energy champions to answer questions about being an MP, what he wanted to be when he grew up and about the environment and climate change.
Commenting on the visit, Edward Davey said, “I always enjoy meeting with local schools and talking to pupils about the work I do, both in the local area and in parliament.
“The children asked an interesting range of questions and I was impressed with their level of knowledge and engagement in current affairs.
“Both schools clearly have a fantastic reputation, and one which is much deserved.”
