To celebrate UK Parliament week, MP for Huntingdon, Johnathan Djongly visited St Peters school in Huntingdon to explain his role as an MP.

The students were able to ask questions about his work and opinions on key issues, and were invited to find out more about how politics works.

The talk, which was held on November 16, was held for sixth form and Year 10 students, allowed older pupils to find out more about politics and encourage more people to get involved.

St Peter’s students have engaged in a range of activities in tutor time, learning about the political system and its routes, and discussions around the rights of women to vote - which were granted 100 years ago.

A spokesman for the school said: “UK Parliament Week aimed to engage, explore and empower young people so that, as they become adults, they use the democratic system to make positive changes to society.”
