Cumbernauld and Kilsyth SNP MSP, Jamie Hepburn.

CUMBERNAULD and Kilsyth SNP MSP, Jamie Hepburn, has enjoyed a visit to Woodlands Primary School, during which the town’s MSP answered questions, which were put forward by the school’s primary 6 class.

Mr Hepburn had previously hoped to meet with the class and answer their questions a couple of weeks ago when they visited the Scottish Parliament, although illness ensured that the Q&A couldn’t go ahead, which saw Mr Hepburn visit the class, yesterday, in order to make up for the previous missed chance to meet.

Pupils of the primary 6 class had also written to Mr Hepburn prior to their visit to the Scottish Parliament asking Mr Hepburn about his role as constituency MSP for the Cumbernauld and Kilsyth area.  Mr Hepburn took part in a secret ballot organised by the class to elect the First Minister of Woodlands Primary, prior to hearing speeches from all the candidates.

Commenting Mr Hepburn said: “I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Woodlands Primary School and meeting primary 6 today.  I was very impressed by all the class candidates’ speeches and was glad to hear that they have all enjoyed learning about the Scottish Parliament.

“Primary 6 had some very good questions for me and it was good to see that they all appeared to enjoy their previous trip to the Scottish Parliament.

“I am more than happy to visit any schools or groups in the Cumbernauld and Kilsyth area, or help arrange visits to the Scottish Parliament.  If any group or individual would like me to visit their organisation or would like to discuss the possibility of visiting the Scottish Parliament I would strongly encourage them to contact my constituency office on 01236 453 969 to discuss the matter.”
