Stephen Morgan, Portsmouth South’s Member of Parliament kicked off the start of UK Parliament Week with a visit to Priory School on Monday.
UK Parliament Week is an annual programme of events to connect people with Parliament and sees schools, museums, charities and businesses around the country joining in a week long programme of activities and events which explore what the UK Parliament means to them and their community.
Stephen Morgan MP said:
“UK Parliament Week is a great opportunity for schools and local organisations here in Portsmouth to engage their audiences or members in our country’s democracy.
I was particularly pleased to kick the week off in my constituency by visiting one of my former schools, Priory School in Southsea, to talk to young people about what being an MP involves and encourage students to aim high and work hard to achieve their dreams”.
Priory School thanked Stephen for attending and said:
“It has been great to have our local MP in this week. We thank him for taking the time to come and work with our students, inspiriting them and raising aspirations”.
