Gavin visits St Bernadette's Primary School

Gavin Williamson, MP for South Staffordshire, visited St Bernadette’s Primary School in Wombourne last week to meet pupils who are coming to Westminster at the end of the month.

Gavin was taken on a tour of the school meeting all staff and pupils, learning about what projects each year was undertaking that term.

Following his tour Gavin met with pupils from years 4 and 5 who will be travelling to Westminster at the end of the month to have a tour of the House of Commons and the House of Lords. He spoke to students about the job of an MP and also about how the role of Chief Whip works and showed them his Red Box and explained why Ministers have them.

On his visit Gavin commented: “It was great to return to St Bernadette’s last week and meet pupils and teachers and hear about the progress of this school. It was great to see the enthusiasm that pupils have for learning about Parliament and the roles that MPs have.

“I’d like to thank everyone at the school for their wonderful hospitality. It’s great to see how excited the students are to visit Westminster and I am sure that they will have a fantastic experience.”
