School Council Visit to London and the Houses of Parliament
In February 2019, the school Parliament, had the opportunity to take a special trip to London to learn more about British rule and democracy. The children had the opportunity to visit a number of important sites including:
- The Houses of Parliament
- Buckingham Palace
- Nelson’s Column
- Big Ben
- 10 Downing Street
- Trafalgar Square

They even managed to fit in a trip to the London Science Museum and Natural History Museum.
