Rona visits Kirkintilloch High School and meets modern studies senior pupils

THE CONTROVERSIAL American presidential election was among the many themes Rona Mackay was quizzed on at a recent high school call.

Rona visited Kirkintilloch High School on Monday November 7 and met senior pupils from modern studies classes.

The Strathkelvin and Bearsden MSP spent more than two hours answering to the pupils, on subjects from Donald Trump to Universal Credit.

Rona Mackay said: “It was a pleasure to visit Kirkintilloch High School and answer the questions of so many modern studies pupils. From knife crime, child poverty and a sugar tax, I was asked about a lot of policies and my own political beliefs.

“I would like to thank Kirkintilloch High School for inviting me a long to speak to their pupils, as young people are at the heart of my agenda in Holyrood. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to returning to the school.”


Rona Mackay was elected in May 2016 with a 8,100 majority in Strathkelvin and Bearsden.

Prior to this, she was a journalist in national newspapers for more than 20 years, before becoming Parliamentary Assistant to Clydebank and Milngavie MSP Gil Paterson, with whom she worked for nine years before becoming elected.
