Pupils quiz MP during visit
Pupils at our school put MP James Wild through his paces when he visited and questioned him on everything from climate change to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn.
A group of our Year 6 children had asked some fantastic questions on a broad range of subjects including climate change, the cost of living and what was happening at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, a nearby neighbour.
The roof at the hospital is being supported by 2,500 props and there has been a vocal campaign to have it rebuilt. A government decision on funding is yet to be made.
Mr Wild, MP for North West Norfolk, said he enjoyed his time with us and being given a guided tour by two children from Year 6, Sharen and Hartley.
“The classes I observed saw pupils enjoying the broad curriculum that is offered in a supportive environment which encourages them to learn. By also offering wider opportunities in music tuition and other activities, pupils benefit from a rounded education,” he said.
“Mr Wild spent a good deal of time talking with the children and answering their insightful questions. They were very excited about hearing what it was like to be a member of parliament. After his tour of the school Mr Wild offered an invitation for Gaywood pupils to visit the Houses of Parliament for a guided tour which the children were excited about,” said Executive Head Teacher Mr Mindham.
