Mrs Harris Visits The Houses of Parliament

Earlier this year, Mrs. Nation received a letter from our local MP (Roger Gale) that included details of the Teachers’ Institute annual course held at the Houses of Parliament. As I help to run the School Council, Mrs Nation suggested I apply.The course sounded fantastic but I wasn’t too hopeful of gaining a place as there were only 75 places available nationwide. To my delight, my application was successful and I’m off to London this week. It looks to be an amazing, action packed week beginning with a pre-course evening meal on the Sunday to meet the other delegates. I’ve included the timetable of activities so you can see what exciting events I will be attending throughout the week.
