Jesse Gray School Council had an amazing opportunity to visit the Houses of Parliament.
Children from 4 years old to 11 years old set off early on Monday morning and were shuttled to Westminster for a special tour.
They found out all about this historical building and that it is the place where Members of Parliament meet to make decisions and pass laws as well as ensuring that the government is running the country properly.
Furthermore, JGSC learned that each adult can vote for a politician in their constituency to represent them in the House of Commons.
They were fortunate enough to have a Q and A session with the Rushcliffe MP, Ruth Edwards.
Ruth was extremely impressed with their knowledge, questions and exceptional behaviour and accepted to be an honorary member of Jesse Gray’s School Council!
JGSC gained so much from their visit, learning more about active citizenship and democracy.
