Parliament Trip

Higher Modern Studies went to the Scottish Parliament yesterday and had a great time and represented the school extremely well – super proud of all of the pupils! They were given a talk from the Education Department about Committees as well as Scrutiny of the Government which was great as we have just covered this in class. We were then lucky enough to have one of our regional MSPs, Edward Mountain come and do a Q+A with the pupils. They asked him some excellent questions which put him on the spot! After this, we went and sat in the Debating Chamber and watched business taking place – with some topics being discussed that are relevant to their course and possibly even their assignment courses. We then had 2 hours of free time in Edinburgh where they got to enjoy some time to go shopping and eat some delicious food. Well done Highers!
