Democracy in Action.
On Friday 23rd of February, pupils of the very small Shalbourne C of E Primary School, met Claire Perry, our local Member of Parliament. She was escorted on a tour of the school by two eloquent pupils, Elsie Bennyworth and Jake Richards. Stopping by a display the children had made tracing the development of democracy in Britain, Claire Perry congratulated the children on a very professional school council election. House Captains explained how they had held their own debates, hustings and how the whole school participated in elections using their own voting slips and purpose-built polling booths.
After presenting house badges to those newly elected, Claire Perry answered ‘Parliamentary Questions’, from pupils. When asked what the trickiest thing about being an MP was, she replied, “Fitting everything in”. Her time schedule was daunting, one minute sitting around the Cabinet Table in 10, Downing Street, next travelling back to Wiltshire, all mixed up with child care and dog walking. The children were fascinated, not least by learning that her office in the House of Commons has a family of mice living in it.
After a musical presentation from pupils, Ms. Perry was thanked and presented with flowers as a token of appreciation. Just before she left, she, and Parent Governor, Mr. Steve Bowdidge, presented Mrs. Zoe Garbutt (class teacher) with a national award for management and leadership.
