MP Taiwo OwaTemi Visits AHPS

On Friday 24th January, we welcomed the newly elected Coventry MP Taiwo Owatemi into school. She talked to the children about how she had become a Member of Parliament and the children shared their concerns over local and worldwide issues with her. Some of the issues the children raised involved: making Coventry safer; gun and knife crime; caring for the environment; pollution; road safety and Brexit. Taiwo said, 'I am blown away by the children's knowledge and passion for making a change'. She added that she would certainly raise some of these issues in Parliament. This was a great opportunity for our children to speak to someone in regular contact with other decision makers in London.
