Rested and returned from their hectic trip to London, the primary sevens had great fun this afternoon during their role play about Parliament.
The new law being debated was suggested by Patrick Woods and agreed upon by Harry Wan and James Seifert. This law involved the formation of new Post-Primary School in Great Britain – schools which would encourage more practical subjects and therefore, careers, such as in ICT, Engineering, Hotel Management and in traditional trades such as plumbing and gardening. These new schools would exist alongside the current academically minded schools but would provide another route for pupils wishing to pursue these specialised careers. The debate was whether the government would consider placing greater funding in this sector of Education.
The discussion was hot and heavy on the floor of the House but was presided over by a very able speaker, Callum McDowell, and two assistants, Harry and James. The leader of the opposition was Niall Patience and the Prime Minister was Matthew Spence!
The vote held by the speaker at the end of the session was close but the decision was made to agree to the formation of these new schools and the new bill was passed to the House of Lords for approval!
Careers in politics might also be a future option for some members of Primary Seven S!
