MSP Rona Mackay holds Q&A with Oxgang Primary School class

CHILDREN at a Kirkintilloch primary school had “excellent” questions about politics, MSP Rona Mackay has said.

The Strathkelvin and Bearsden MSP visited Oxgang Primary School on June 19 and held a question and answers session with pupils.

Out in the playing field in the sun, Ms Mackay answered a range of questions about how she entered politics and what being an MSP involves.

She said: “It was a pleasure to meet P6 pupils at Oxgang Primary School to answer their questions about political life.

“Despite being very young, there are a lot of children who have a high standard of political knowledge for their age, which is very impressive.

“Visiting the schools of my constituency is one of the best parts of representing Strathkelvin and Bearsden in the Scottish Parliament.”
