Hatfield Woodhouse Primary School pupils were the latest Don Valley visitors to the oldest parliament in the world,
when twenty year six pupils joined the “Story of Parliament” tour this week.
Said Lesley Bailey, Chair of Governors: “This was my sixth trip with the school to Parliament and the Education Service was even better than the last visit. The video and talk were well tailored to the age of our children and kept their interest.
“The tour was brilliant and it was great to meet Caroline Flint once again. The children were so pleased to meet Caroline and had lots of questions about her work, and about things that concerned them, like traffic speed near our school.”
Said Caroline: “It was great to meet the pupils from Hatfield Woodhouse Primary. Parliament runs a fantastic education service to support local schools. Schools from Doncaster are eligible for a subsidy of up to fifty per cent of the cost of travel, so the trip is very affordable to schools.”
After their day in Parliament, the pupils made the short walk through St James Park to see Buckingham Palace before their train journey home.
