Conor McGinn visited St Cuthbert’s High School on Friday to meet head teacher Mrs Twist and the school’s Student Senior Team. At the school he spoke to students about his role as their local MP, and why he became involved in politics.
The students took the opportunity to question Conor on a wide range of issues including dealing with confrontation, funding cuts to mental health and his hobbies.
хЪSpeaking after the visit Conor said:
“It was great to meet the students today, they asked some interesting questions. It was important to hear about the issues and concerns they have, as well as learning more about what they do.
“It is evident from my visit that Mrs Twist and the whole school are working hard to raise both the aspirations of the pupils and their attainment levels. I look forward to visiting again in the future.”
