Lucton School students given a lesson in EU politics
10:07am Wednesday 29th January 2014 in News
STUDENTS at a county school have been given a lesson in EU politics.
Anthea McIntyre, MEP for the West Midlands, visited Lucton School recently to give a talk on the European Union.
The Herefordshire-based MEP met with students studying history and politics to discuss her journey into politics and her work in various committees.
Rachel Phillips, history teacher at Lucton School, said: “We were absolutely delighted that Miss McIntrye could join us. It was fascinating to get a first-hand insight into the role of an MEP and the day-to-day workings of the European Parliament.”
Miss McIntyre is as a member of the agriculture committee, the civil liberties, justice and home affairs committee and finally the employment committee – for which she is the UK Conservative spokesperson in the European Parliament.
She said: “It was a pleasure speaking to pupils at Lucton School and I was very impressed with their interest in Europe and their understanding, evidenced by the challenging questions they asked.”
