Cowbridge Pupils Visit Westminster

Pupils from Ysgol Iolo Morganwg in Cowbridge made a curriculum based visit to Westminster recently for a tour. The group met with Vale MP Alun Cairns and then took part in an interactive workshop focussed on the role of democracy.

The pupils left Cowbridge at 5.30am for a full day of activity in Parliament, and the group took part in a number of debates, and question and answer sessions.

Mr Cairns said: “It was a privilege to welcome the pupils from Ysgol Iolo Morganwg Primary School to Westminster. The trip was very well organised by the teachers, and as the day is curriculum based the pupils had the opportunity to learn more about democracy and how Parliament operates.”
