MP Visits Hipsburn

MP Visits Hipsburn Primary 

On Friday 14th October, Darlington MP Peter Gibson visited us and recreated the House of Parliament in our hall! The MP, who made politics interactive and fun, split the hall of children into two parts (just like a debate in the Houses of Parliament) and successfully inspired the children and informed them about what his job included.

Peter answered pupil’s questions in the style of a political debate and introduced the children to political parties and how they are equal in a debate. The children were intrigued and they were all eager to ask about his job.
