Stevenson Welcomes Peterhead Academy To Parliament

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson yesterday (Thursday) hosted a visit to the Scottish Parliament from Peterhead Academy students. The S4 and S5 Modern Studies students, accompanied by teachers Gordon West and Jacqueline Ives, received a tour of the Parliament, attended the Chamber for First Minister’s Question Time and met with Mr. Stevenson and SNP North East MSP and Schools Minister Maureen Watt.

Commenting after the visit, Mr. Stevenson said:

“I am delighted to have had the chance to welcome Peterhead Academy to the Parliament and to meet with local pupils from my constituency. It is an excellent idea for students to visit the Scottish Parliament, meet with MSPs and witness at first hand how the Scottish political system works.

“I took the opportunity to explain some of the procedures of Parliament to the group and describe the average working day of an MSP and indeed a Minister. The visit seemed to be both a learning and fun experience for the students.

“I was highly impressed at how well informed, articulate and assertive this group of young people showed themselves to be. They are a credit to their teachers and to their school. Indeed I wouldn’t be surprised if amongst this group of bright, confident students there were some future MSPs!”
