Story: St Catherine's School Council

On 5th November St Catherine’s School Council had a visit from the MP David Blunkett. He came to speak to the School Council about the work they have been doing during the last half term.

When he arrived (with his guide dog Sadie) the School Council introduced themselves and then began telling Mr Blunkett about the Okpara campaign they have been involved with recently, the parking campaign around our school and how our School Council works. They also told him about the Careers Fair they are organising in December and invited Mr Blunkett to attend to talk to our children about his job. He said he would be delighted to attend!

We then found out a little about Mr Blunkett’s job as an MP and about the work he has to do. We asked him lots of questions about his work as an MP (it’s a really interesting job) and about the jobs he has done before he became an MP (he used to be a teacher!).

He was really impressed with our School Council and thought the work we have done so far and our planning in the future was fantastic. He congratulated us on our support for the Okpara family and how we learnt all about Human Rights and how this has affected the Okparas. He told us that they have his full support.

Mr Blunkett was so impressed with our School Council that he invited us to visit him at the Houses of Parliament next year and see just how our MP’s do their job, make decisions and run their meetings!
