Student Council at Stradbroke Primary Quizzes Dr Dan

Following a visit to Stradbroke High School, Dr Dan was pleased to visit Stradbroke Primary School where he met with the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team, before going on to a lively Question and Answer session with a group of pupils.

The pupils were all too keen to put their questions to Dr Dan, who was thoroughly impressed with the time they had taken to research and think in advance about their ideas, given the wide range of questions which they put to Dr Dan on the day.

Visits such as these are important in strengthening the link between what Dr Dan does as an MP locally and how he can make sure that the voice of our communities here in Suffolk are heard in Parliament.
