WHS Hits the News

Wirral Hospitals' School has been in the news recently following our hugely successful International Week and an equally successful vist from local MP, Alison McGovern.

Your MP: Alison McGovern, Wednesday 8th July 2015

I received a very warm welcome when I visited Wirral Hospitals’ School in Claughton last Friday.

I went along to take part in a question and answer session to mark the school’s International Week in which the students explored and learned about the different countries and cultures around the world. I was shown some of the work that they produced as part of their learning during the week.

I talked to the school about my role as a British politician and how democracy works in this country, and I was asked some great questions about both local and national politics.

Wirral Hospitals’ School provides much needed support to young people who, for a variety of reasons, would find it difficult to attend a mainstream school and I was very impressed with all the students and the staff that I met.

It’s clear that the right environment has been created for students to flourish and I was very happy to be asked to come and learn more about their school and see some of the students’ work. The school provides education and support to students who live across the Wirral.

CHILDREN at a Wirral school have been given an insight into British democracy as part of a week-long programme aimed at promoting a multi-cultural society.

Wirral South MP Alison McGovern visited Wirral Hospitals’ School on Friday to give a talk about her role as a politician.

It formed part of the school’s International Week, which saw them learn about 13 different countries and their cultures.

Helen O’Loughlin, PSHE lead at the school, said: “We’ve been working closely with MEAS (Wirral’s minority ethnic achievement service) to bring multiculturalism into the classroom.

“We looked at 13 different countries but we wanted to look at Britishness so we asked Alison McGovern to come in and talk to students about her role and British democracy and what it means to be a British citizen.”

 

Ms McGovern spoke openly about what drove her to become an MP and her passion for improving the life chances of all people in her constituency.

She also led a question and answer session, giving students the opportunity to learn about the life of an MP and the operations of Parliament.

“Our students were highly engaged with Alison’s talk and asked some excellent questions that explored the work of an MP, how democracy works in Britain and how we can all be involved in making a positive change in our society,” added Helen.

  

Ms McGovern said: “I was asked some great questions about politics and democracy in this country and was shown some very impressive work done by the students at the school. I’d like to thank them for inviting me along to join in with their exploring of different countries and cultures around the world.”
