Parliament Meeting

This week Hallie from 6N writes about a very special meeting the school council.

As the School Council, we had an amazing opportunity to have a meeting with some of the members of Parliament. They told us all about the system and taught us some fascinating facts that we never knew before (can you believe that women were not allowed in the chambers until 1958!). It was surely an experience I will never forget. A fact I learnt is that there are two houses, House of Lords and the House of Commons. They taught us about these two groups and how they operate. They allowed us to ask questions and answered them to our satisfaction.
