Pupils at a Colwyn Bay primary school have been praised for their knowledge of the democratic process by North Wales MS Llyr Gruffydd.
Mr Gruffydd visited Ysgol Nant y Groes in Colwyn Bay after receiving detailed questions from pupils in the Seiriol class, under the guidance of teacher Louise Hutchinson.
Mr Gruffydd said: "The year five pupils had clearly taken their project to heart and when I received letters from everyone I thought it would be more fitting to attend a question and answer session in person at the school. Needless to say, the children had prepared thoroughly and were ready with questions as varied as whether I had any contact with Boris Johnson and how many security guards worked in the Senedd.
"It was a real pleasure to see how engaged they were with the political process and it's something I'd like to see all schools undertake. The level of understanding would have put some voters to shame and I hope they'll continue to engage with politics and the democratic process when they're older.
"I'd like to thank the teacher for her enthusiasm and the school for the warm welcome."
Teacher Louise Hutchinson said: “The children were thrilled to have a real-life Member of the Senedd visit their class and I hope that, by learning about decision makers at all levels in Wales and meeting Mr Gruffydd, we will see them become informed voters in the future - and possibly town or county councillors or even MS or MPs!”
