On Wednesday the 13th of January we went to Scottish Parliament to deliver our presentation on hunger locally and globally. Gil Paterson (MSP) and Margaret McDougall (MSP) came to see us doing our presentation. Connor, Lucas and Kevin, Lauren and Orla, Rachel and Nicole delivered their speeches, they were all really good. Once the presentation was over we went to the debate chamber. We also got to do a quiz which we had to find the answers to in the public area. When we listened to the debate we realised that they were discussing the same issues we have been learning about (poverty and hunger and the rise of food banks) One of the MSPs mentioned the same statistic that Connor had in his speech! It made it seem even more important because the politicians that are in charge of the country were talking about the problem and we had just said our speeches on the same problem.
Here are some of the tweets about our presentation:
‘Fab presentation by @StEunan P7s re hunger & Scottish Foodbanks’
‘Delighted @StEunan had opportunity to showcase their amazing contribution.’
‘What a fantastic presentation on ‘The Right to Food’ by the children of @StEunan Scottish Parliament Teachers Mums and Dads bound to be proud
