George Freeman MP visits Attleborough Academy

Sixth Form Sociology and Psychology students experienced a question and answer session with a visiting politician in order to gain further insight into the workings of our government and  responses to key social issues. Arriving to the Academy directly from a Remembrance Day dedication at the Attleborough war memorial, Mr George Freeman praised the excellent conduct of the Academy’s students at the event and was then quickly into his stride offering to explain his role as MP and then offering to take questions on any subject.

The Conservative MP for Mid-Norfolk began by explaining the importance of voting and the value of participation whatever party one supported. He urged students to get involved in democracy -  referencing World Wars and the suffragette movement – declaring that liberties once won should be jealously protected and the best way to do that is to make sure that your voice is heard through voting.
