Jesse Norman MP drops into John Kyrle High School for a lively discussion
10:53am Monday 3rd February 2014 in News
LOCAL MP, Jesse Norman, spent a day at John Kyrle High School, last week, to meet staff and students as well as handing out certificates of achievement to outstanding mathematicians in a celebration of maths success.
As part of a busy day for the Hereford and South Herefordshire MP, Mr Norman also spoke to over 250 sixth form students for an hour in a question time style session, answering the students’ questions; topics discussed ranged from immigration to tuition fees and from Lords’ reform to honour in politics.
Headteacher, Nigel Griffiths said, “Throughout the day students were talking about various aspects of the visit. Maths teacher, Luke Moseley’s organisation of the event and Jesse’s performance with the students created a real buzz around the school.”
Jesse Norman said of his visit, “It was such an honour to be able to come and spend some real time at John Kyrle. The students were terrific and I especially appreciated the opportunity to speak in a little more detail and with a bit more colour than in a normal political debate.”
