01/07/2017   Interview with local MP

 School Council interview local MP Matt Warman

Both School Councils within the Great Oaks Federation had an exciting Friday morning. Basing themselves in the library at Wyberton, children and staff welcomed the MP Matt Warman. Very quickly Holly, Poopy, Thomas and Charlie explained how they had run their campaigns and produced their own manifestos too. Matt was impressed with the ideas and how successful they had been. He is very interested to see how the winning party carries these ideas through now. After this, both Councils had the opportunity for a question and answer session. There were some very thoughtful questions posed from boths schools.'

How long does it take to write a manifesto?'

Well the local ones is a much simpler task because you know the issues and what the problems are. I then have to convince the government that Lincolnshire requires this money. Centrally - we work together and think about national issues. These can take up to six weeks.

Why did you pick your profession?

I used to write for the paper. But all I was doing was writing about issues and I wanted to change things. I recognised that hard problems would take longer to fix. As a child I thought I might be a train driver  and writer.

Who has inspired you?

My family have always inspired me but supporting and shaping me. My dad grew up in the war and did National Service. One of my teachers, like my father was keen to instill how you help your family and others. Finally, Peter Lilly, a MP. He was absolutely dedicated in explaining ideas to convince others to engage with your ideas.

As always the pupils were an absolute credit to the schools with their behaviour, engagement and presentational skills.
