Don 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.”
