Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has today [Wednesday] welcomed teachers and pupils from Peterhead Academy to the Scottish Parliament. This was the latest in a series of local school visits to the heart of Scottish political life.

Mr Stevenson said of the visit:

“It is always a pleasure to receive visits from school pupils in my constituency to the Scottish Parliament. It is a useful way to show them how government works and what their elected representatives do when not in their constituencies.

“As usual, there was a high level of knowledge about the Parliament and about politics in general. I hope that this will ensure that they continue to take an interest in politics in the future.

“The pupils were able to see all aspects of the Parliament, including the debating chamber, the various lobbies and the committee rooms. They were also able to watch some of the afternoon’s debates and see politics in action.

“The interest in the Parliament building has been huge since the move to Holyrood and I look forward to welcoming more groups to the Parliament in the future.”
