MP Visits school for Q&A

Lymm High School students were offered a fascinating perspective into life as a politician during a question-and-answer session with Faisal Rashid, MP for Warrington South last week.

Mr Rashid was welcomed to the school by Headteacher Gwyn Williams before speaking to students about his recent experiences as a new MP.

Students packed into a room to hear Mr Rashid, as he explained how he entered into a career in politics and talked about the current challenges being faced in his constituency.

During his visit Faisal faced a series of well-thought out questions from Lymm students on a range of issues, including the abolishment of University fees and lowering the voting age to 16.

Students also gained an insight into the work of an MP as Mr Rashid gave a detailed account of his average working week, and encouraged students to consider getting involved in politics.

Commenting on his visit afterwards, he said: “It was a pleasure to visit Lymm High School last week. I was very impressed with how knowledgeable the students were, and how engaged they are in politics and current affairs. I am incredibly proud of the students in Warrington South, and I look forward to catching up with them again.”

Mr G. Williams, Headteacher, said “we were delighted that Faisal Rashid took the time out of his busy schedule to come and talk to our students about politics, education, current affairs and their wider implications. There was a stimulating Q&A session and I am sure our students will have gained from these experiences.”
