Aberlady pupils visit Holyrood

A group of P7 pupils from Aberlady Primary School have become the first schoolchildren from the county to visit the Scottish Parliament in 2019.

Local MSP Iain Gray met with the pupils during the visit, which was organised via the Parliament’s Education Outreach service. He talked about his role as East Lothian’s MSP and answered some of their questions about the way Parliament works.

Iain Gray MSP said:

“East Lothian schools have a great record for visiting the Scottish Parliament, with the majority now having attended at some point during my time as the local MSP. It was a pleasure to welcome this latest group from Aberlady, the first local pupils to visit this year, and answer some of their questions.

“I know they have been very busy over recent months learning about Scottish politics, including a recent visit to the school from my Westminster colleague, Martin Whitfield. I hope they found the visit to Holyrood useful and enjoyed finding out more about the way Parliament functions.”
