Oldham Hulme Grammar School Parliament Week Event .
My first visit as part of Parliament week was attending the fantastic Oldham Hulme Grammar School. I was impressed with the week-long activities the school held such as Mock referendums, promoting Local Council and Youth Council Elections and discussing how democracy works in the UK.
It is always unnerving to speak to students as in my experience some of the most challenging and interesting questions come from our Youth. I discussed what my role as a Member of Parliament entails, my work in Parliament and the importance of Participation in democracy, followed by a great Q & A session from the students!.
