S5/6 London Trip
During the recent February holidays, four senior pupils - Chloe, Holly, Logan and Isaac - accompanied by Mr Douglas and Miss McNaughton - went on an educational excursion to London. During the stay, the group visited many of the major London sights, with the highlights being a visit to the Tutankhamen Exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery, and a tour of the Houses of Parliament. The latter was particularly well received by the pupils. Many thanks to David Mundell MP for very kindly arranging this for us, and for giving us the use of his Parliamentary Assistant Sophie Ferdinand, who did a grand job describing the history of that wonderful building and explaining its modern day functions as the political heart of the country. It truly was a wonderful experience for our young people, and we are very grateful to David and Sophie for giving us this very rare opportunity to get a behind the scenes look at the workings of the Houses of Parliament.
