Dr Dan Poulter was pleased to visit Ormiston Endeavour High School in Ipswich on Friday 21st September, where he met with the new Head Teacher, Mr Jamie Daniels.
Following the meeting, Dr Dan was then welcomed by an enthusiastic group of students, who were ready and eager to put their questions to their local MP, with the questions coming thick and fast. In particular, the group were very keen to learn more about Dr Dan's work as an MP, both here in Suffolk and in Westminster, but also his role as a part-time doctor.
The students had clearly done their homework and wanted to put their time with their local MP to good use, asking a range of questions on the complexities of the Brexit negotiations, changes to GCSE grading, NHS funding, employment opportunities and the pathway into politics.
Speaking about the visit, Dr Dan said "It's always encouraging to see younger people so engaged with politics, especially coming up with their own ideas and putting forward their own views on such a wide range of topics. It's especially heartening to hear the students' talk about how they would like to see their views and ideas perhaps bring about positive change."
