Visit to Cockenzie primary school

Iain Gray MSP has made his first school visit of the new year to Cockenzie Primary School to speak to two classes of P7 pupils.

Speaking after the visit, Iain Gray MSP said:

“I have often talked about how much I enjoy visits to local schools. Last week I made my first visit of the new year, with an hour spent with two P7 classes at Cockenzie Primary School.

“Both classes are exploring democracy and what that means for us here in Scotland. They were well prepared with lots of very perceptive questions about my life and work as the local MSP.

“In these sessions I always like to ask a few questions of my own, and I quickly discovered that these pupils had already learned a great deal about the Scottish Parliament and how it operates.

“I know they plan to visit Holyrood in a few weeks, so I look forward to meeting up with them again then.”
