Pupils from Saltoun and Humbie Primary Schools have visited the Scottish Parliament where they were welcomed by Martin Whitfield MSP and given a tour of the parliamentary estate.
The South Scotland MSP met the pupils on their arrival at Holyrood and gave them a tour. This included the parliament’s debating chamber, followed by the chance to ask some questions. Their trip came after Mr Whitfield’s visit to Saltoun for a Q&A at the school earlier this year.
Martin Whitfield MSP said:
“Having visited Saltoun primary school and met the class earlier this year, I was delighted to be able to return the favour and welcome them and the Humbie pupils to parliament for a special tour of the building.
“Visiting parliament is the best way to learn more about the way it works and how decisions are made. I hope the pupils enjoyed the experience and found it helpful for their parliamentary project.
“They were just as engaged and enthusiastic as when I visited them and had more probing questions ready for me!”
