MP urges schools to sign up to UK Parliament Week
Gordon Henderson MP is calling on schools and youth groups in Sittingbourne and Sheppey to sign up to UK Parliament Week.
Between 1st and 7th November organisations all around the UK will be encouraged to delve into the inner workings of our democracy.
When you sign up, your organisation will get a free kit packed with goodies for your UK Parliament Week activity, including an information booklet, a ballot box, some chilli seeds to plant and more.
You can also take your activity one step further and explore the variety of resources which are available for everyone to use.
From interactive tours and videos to printable packs, there is something for everyone – no matter their age.
Mr Henderson said: “UK Parliament Week is a great way to get young people involved and find out how democracy works in our country.
“I would urge all schools and groups that work with children in my constituency to find out more and sign up to the week-long scheme.
“It is essential children grow up knowing how this country runs, so they have the power and knowledge to challenge and debate the key issues in future.”
Groups which sign up will have the opportunity to invite Mr Henderson to their activity, helping to bring the experience to life.
