Primary 6 trip to the Scottish Parliament

On Thursday 22nd June Primary 6 went for a visit to the Scottish Parliament.  We heard about the history of the Scottish Parliament and learnt that our current Parliament building was built only 14 years ago.  We had a tour of the building and got to go inside the Debating Chamber where the First Minister questions would be taking place later on that day.  There are 129 seats in the debating chamber one for each of the MSP’s.  We then had an opportunity to meet and pose questions to Andy Wightman, who is an MSP for the Scottish Green Party.  He told us about what life was like as a politician and what kind of activities he was involved in as an MSP.
