McKinney Primary pupils enjoy visit to Stormont

PUPILS from McKinney Primary School were given a special tour of Stormont by local MLA Basil McCrea last week.

The Lisburn councillor took children from Primary 6 and 7 and their teachers around Parliament Buildings, including the assembly chamber, member's dining room and the Long Gallery.

Pupils even had time for a vote on whether teachers should be given a pay rise, with the resounding answer a firm 'no'.

Mr McCrea said: "The children were a credit to their school. They asked plenty of questions and were keen to learn more about the work of the Assembly.

"I would extend the invitation to any school or other organisation who would like to come up for a tour."

Tours of Parliament Buildings can be arranged through Mr McCrea's constituency office in Lisburn. This is located at 34 Hillsborough Road, telephone 9266 8583
