Pupils and staff from Maes y Morfa School, Llanelli have been to visit parliament this week. Their visit was arranged in conjunction with Parliament’s education service. This gave the pupils not only the experience of seeing for themselves where it all happens, but the chance to see how democracy works by taking part in mock elections.
Their visit also included a discussion with Nia Griffith MP. Commenting on her meeting with the pupils, Nia Griffith MP said ” The pupils had clearly enjoyed looking around parliament, and they were keen to tell me that they had even seen the Prime Minister in person: that will be something that they will remember for a long time. Then we talked about my work as an MP both in Parliament, and when I am back home in Llanelli and I also asked them what they think we should be doing with the former Railway Goods Shed in Marsh Street. They were nearly all familiar with the building, and they all thought that it should be done up and they wanted to see the land around it cleared up as well. They would like to see activities for young people there, and one pupil suggested a Museum. I will certainly feed back their ideas to the Llanelli Railway Goods Shed Trust.”
