I had an enjoyable chat recently with students from St John Fisher, after receiving an invite from the school’s head teacher to take part in a question and answers session.

I was pleasantly impressed with the students knowledge of politics and the present nation issues and policies, of the major parties.

From the response that I received directly afterwards and subsequently on-line, it seems that I made a pretty positive impact?

St John Fisher Catholic High School is the Catholic secondary school for the Peterborough area.

One of the nice comments I received afterwards was this one:

“My niece was there. She and her friends were well impressed with you. She said your performance persuaded some of them to vote Lib-Dems.

“Their least favourite was a certain Stewart Jackson. No surprises there!” (Source)

It’s a shame a few more schools in the city do not undertake a similar exercise in order to encourage interest amongst their students?

The school has some 750 students aged 11-18.

In Coalition, the Liberal Democrats have created a £2.5 billion Pupil Premium, which targets extra money at pupils who need the most help. See how much extra cash your local schools are getting by CLICKING HERE!

Commenting, local Lib Dem ward councillor, Darren Fower said:

“In this area alone we have seen nearly £250k given to local schools in the last year alone to help address the needs of those pupils that deserve the most help!

“Whatever some may say, this is a unique project that both successive Tory and Labour Governments have failed to introduce, and thankfully our guys in Westminster and Parliament have succeeded in doing.”
