Chris Elmore, MP for Ogmore, has praised pupils at Llanhari Primary School during a visit to meet with their school senedd.
On Monday, the Ogmore MP joined staff and pupils in Llanhari for a tour of the school by Year 6 pupils, before being given a grilling by the school’s Parliament.
Every child in Key Stage 2 at the school is assigned to a government department and ministers are elected to speak out and deliver on their individual remits. During Chris’ visit, groups of pupils worked on their department’s portfolios and worked as teams, mirroring the work of government ministers.
The Headteacher, Mrs Coates, accompanied Chris on his visit and was clearly very proud of her pupils’ achievements through the school’s senedd.
Chris Elmore MP said:
“I’d like to say a massive thank you to all of the pupils, Mrs Coates, and all of the teaching and support staff for such a warm welcome today. It’s really been wonderful.
“I always love seeing young people being really engaged with politics and it’s safe to say the ministers in the school’s senedd would certainly give the UK Government a run for their money!
“I’m really looking forward to meeting with the school’s eco team next term. It’s clear that the pupils are working together to make a real difference to their communities.”
