Maria Miller MP took part in a Q and A session with The Costello School Pupils. The session was hosted by Head Teacher Randall Jull and a wide range of year groups took part.
Pupils questioned their local MP on various topics including Brexit, Lockdown, the Economy and Mental Health. They were also keen to learn what it was like to be an MP.
Maria Miller Commented;
“The Costello pupils had an incredible grasp on national and local issues that affect young people. It was interesting to learn how important mental health was as a key topic for discussion as a result of lockdown and the pandemic. Teachers have played a key role in ensuring that pupils in Basingstoke have continued to learn in different settings and adapt to new processes put in place during the pandemic. Pupils at Costello demonstrated a tremendous resilience to adapting to a new way of learning and living. I am also keen to engage further with young people in the Borough on what it is they think would further enhance life in Basingstoke.”
