A regular visitor to Debenham High School, our local MP Dr Dan Poulter was delighted to meet with a group of students during a visit to the school today, where they had the opportunity to learn more about the role of an MP, both in Westminster and here in the Central Suffolk and North Ipswich constituency.
Dr Dan was welcomed by Head Teacher, Mr Simon Martin, before joining the group of students for an in-depth and varied Question and Answer session, with questions focussing on the pandemic, environmental and fiscal matters, and mental health. Although very early on in the school year, this cohort of students were incredibly engaged with current politics and enjoyed putting their many and challenging questions directly to their local MP.
Speaking about the visit, Dr Dan added that "It's great to see our outstanding students and young adults here in Suffolk so engaged with politics and the wider issues, especially putting forward such carefully considered and well-informed questions. Debenham High School always offers me an exceptionally warm welcome and it was good to see this new cohort of students starting the new school year so positively."
