Our History and Politics students visited London.

In the morning, our students were treated to a tour of Parliament which included visiting the chamber of the House of Lords and an opportunity to see a debate in the House of Commons. This was followed by a ‘question and answer’ session with our local MP, Marie Rimmer.

Afterwards, our History students visited the Imperial War Museum to view displays and collections covering Winston Churchill’s life, the Holocaust, and the Northern Ireland conflict.

In the afternoon the Politics students visited Europe House, the liaison office of the European Parliament in the UK. This was a great opportunity for our students to learn more about the role of the European Parliament and took part in a debate about the priorities for the EU in the future. This visit is part of our involvement as a European Parliament Ambassador School (EPAS). Throughout this year, Carmel College has participated in several activities as part of the EPAS scheme.

The students ended the day with a brief tour of the sites of central London, including Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace!
