Lord Aberdare Visits Bryngwyn School

Bryngwyn School hosted a talk from a member of the House of Lords on Friday 22nd November  to encourage students to engage more with the political and parliamentary process.  Lord Aberdare met with 50 GCSE pupils for an hour to talk about the work and role of the House of Lords. This was followed by a question and answer session on various aspects of the parliamentary process and life at Westminster generally.

Mr Dave Williams Deputy Headteacher at Bryngwyn School said “This was a fantastic opportunity for our students to interact with someone who knows the parliamentary system inside out, as it can sometimes seem far removed from their daily lives. Pupils thoroughly enjoyed the experience and loved the opportunity to question a Lord on their own doorstep”

The visit was arranged through the Lord Speaker’s “Peers in Schools” programme, which has been running across the UK since 2007 and has so far involved around 50,000 young people.  This continuing outreach programme sends members of the House of Lords into schools and colleges across the country to give talks in support of the citizenship curriculum.  For further information, see the Lord Speaker’s web page at www.parliament.uk/lordspeaker .
