Monica Attends ‘Question Time’ With St Mark’s Primary

On a local visit to St Mark’s Primary in Hamilton, Monica was part of a ‘Question Time’ led by Primary 7 pupils.  

The pupils who have been learning about devolution and the role of the Scottish Parliament invited Monica to answer their wide-ranging questions. Topics covered children’s rights, the environment and even looking for advice regarding their upcoming transition to St John Ogilvie High School.

Monica said of the visit: 

“It was a pleasure to be invited to meet with the Primary 7 class at St Mark’s Primary in Hamilton. 

“They were an impressive group, and I congratulate the pupils on their knowledge and their insightful and detailed questions. 

“They had clearly done their homework, grilling me on my proposed ecocide law, my parliamentary motion celebrating Taylor Swift and asking me to reflect on my high school days at St John Ogilvie High as they prepare to make the big move after the summer holidays. We also talked about the record levels of food poverty and food waste, and how we need local and national solutions to these distressing problems. 

“It is so important that young people feel they have a voice and can put their questions and ideas directly to their elected politicians.

“Our local schools do a brilliant job and I want to thank the staff, parents and pupils of St Mary’s Primary in Hamilton for their efforts in the classroom and the wider community.”
