Westminster Visit 15th October 2018
The Weston Road Academy Council were delighted to receive an invite to Westminster following a visit from our local MP Jeremy Lefroy. Mr Lefroy attended a meeting of STAFFORD schools parliament held at The Weston Road Academy back in March 2018.
The Academy Council works hard to contribute to Academy life and are actively engaged in improving experiences at The Weston Road Academy.
Westminster proved to be a wonderful experience. The building was amazing. Many pupils who attended had not visited to London before or used the underground trains, and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity and experience.
Mr Lefroy hired a room at Westminister to meet with pupils from the Academy and the pupils were given the chance to ask lots of questions. The pupils found the day informative and provided an insight to politics.
The Pupils had a fantastic experience and made the following comments about their visit:
On the Trip to Westminster, I had a lot of fun walking through the House of Commons and seeing Dennis Skinner’s reserved seat. It was a very informative and worthwhile trip. Jack Malone
I really enjoyed walking through the many different rooms of House of Commons and listening to the history of the building. I will definitely revisit. Jacob Kennett
Our meeting with Mr Jeremy Lefroy was both enlightening and interesting. Esmé O’Prey
The trip to London was a wonderful, memorable experience and an amazing insight into the day to day life of working in politics. An all-round brilliant trip with great company. Harry Davies
The trip to London was an incredible moment I shall not forget. Being able to look around the House of Commons and getting a deeper insight into politics was a joy. Leah Gould.
It was very interesting to learn how our politics system works. I now feel more educated in the way we can express our viewpoints especially after discussing the importance of young people’s opinion with Mr Lefroy. Charlotte Evans.
