Animal questions at Meersbrook Bank

Monday, February 20, 2012

Local MP Meg Munn visited Year 5 students at Meersbrook Bank Primary School after receiving a letter from one of the students who was concerned about animals losing their habitats. The students asked Meg lots of questions, including about how animals are treated. They included “Do you agree with Fox Hunting?” “Do you think keeping animals in circuses is cruel?” “Have you ever met the Queen?” and “Have you ever been involved in changing any laws?”

There was also a discussion about a topic the students felt strongly about changing the age that young people can vote. All of the students in Year 5 thought that starting voting at 18 years is too old, and that the voting age should be lower. The main concern was that on the issues they cared about, laws might be passed before they were old enough to vote.

Three students put forward their cases to the class for wanting to reduce the voting age to 15, 12 or 10 years. 16 students wanted young people to have the vote at age 10; 4 wanted it from age 12 and 3 at age 15.

Meg also met representatives from the School Council, who explained about their work raising funds to put on a school play, and overseeing awards for the class with the best attendance. The School Council also organised construction challenges and a Lego building competition during Enterprise Week. Issues the School Council are looking into at the moment include road safety and parking outside of the school.

Meg said:

“I really enjoyed my visit to Meersbrook Bank Primary School. The students had lots of questions for me and explained their concerns about a number of issues they cared about, including the practice of using wild animals in circuses. After my visit I wrote to the government urging them to support a ban on wild animals in circuses in the UK.”
