Pupils at a Cumbernauld school got the chance to talk politics after a local MP paid a visit to their classroom.

MP Gregg McClymont was the guest of St Maurice’s Modern Studies teacher Annette Graham as he addressed pupils from the Higher class on the role of an MP, and took questions.

He said: “Pupils at St Maurice’s are engaged and well-informed so it is always a pleasure to visit.

“I was impressed by the many insightful and testing questions.”

He added: “The visit reminded me how tiring teaching can be but the pupils and teachers kept me on my toes!”
