I received a very warm welcome when I visited Wirral Hospitals’ School in Claughton last Friday.
I went along to take part in a question and answer session to mark the schools International Week in which the students explored and learned about the different countries and cultures around the world. I was shown some of the work that they produced as part of their learning during the week.
I talked to the school about my role as a British politician and how democracy works in this country and I was asked some great questions about both local and national politics.
Wirral Hospitals’ School provides much needed support to young people who for a variety of reasons would find it difficult to attend a mainstream school and I was very impressed with all the students and the staff that I met.
It’s clear that the right environment has been created for students to flourish and I was very happy to be asked to come and learn more about their school and see some of the student’s work. The school provides education and support to students who live across the Wirral.
This Wednesday I will be in Parliament to watch the Chancellor deliver the first budget since the election. It will also be the first budget that George Osborne has announced under a majority Conservative Government so I will playing close attention to what the announcements will mean for people living in Wirral.
I was delighted to be joined by volunteers recently to resume door knocking sessions in Wirral South following the election to hear the thoughts of my constituents and look forward to talking to more people in the coming weeks and this Friday I am looking forward to engaging with the pupils at St John Plessington to hear their suggestions of how to get more young people involved with politics.
