Primary 7 – Scottish Parliament Trip

On Monday, we braved the rain to visit the Scottish Parliament building at Holyrood. Despite being more than a little soggy we had a fabulous time! We learned about the history of the parliament, the difference between devolved and reserved powers and the current MSPs who make up the parliament and government. The highlights of the visit were getting to stand in the debating chamber next to the mace and speaking through the microphones in a committee room.

Following on from this trip we will be grouping into our own political parties and running a mock election… we can’t wait! Nicola Sturgeon better watch out!IMG_3781 IMG_3798
