Labour's Thorne team enjoy school dinner

King Edward Primary SchoolDon Valley MP Caroline Flint and Thorne councillors Eddie Dobbs and Rachel Hodson were guests at King Edward Primary School this week, having a full tour; seeing the choir rehearse; enjoying a school dinner and being quizzed by the school council.

Said Eddie Dobbs:  “The school council have a very busy time and have organised a coffee morning for parents and are planning a talent show.”

Said Rachel Hodson: “The children had a dozen questions about what councillors and MPs do, how do we get elected and how long it takes.  Each of the school council had to make a speech to class mates and be chosen after a vote; so it was easy to explain that we became councillors in very much the same way.”

Said Caroline:  “We had a great school lunch.  School dinners are still great value and sometimes the most important meal a child gets.  Mr Buxton took us on a full tour of the school and I was hugely impressed by the knowledge of pupils that we learning about the life and work of Picasso.”
