MP visits school

Pool Academy students were delighted to show MP George Eustice around the school when he visited recently.


A group of Year 7s were selected to give the MP for Camborne, Redruth and Illogan a guided tour around the school.

He was given a glimpse of school life as he was shown the Art, Drama, English, Science and Maths rooms.

The Year 7 group also had the chance to ask him questions about life as an MP. One student was interested in what he did to reduce his plastic use. His response included the fact he used reusable cups instead of takeaway ones.

Jessica Elliott, Year 7, said: “Meeting George Eustice was amazing. It felt great meeting someone famous and being an MP he is very busy. He was nice and friendly.”

Summer Louise said: “He was nice and charming. We found the visit very informative and I would do it again if I had the chance.”

Claire Meakin, Pool Academy Principal, said: “It was wonderful to welcome Mr Eustice to Pool Academy and show him around the school. It was very interesting to hear his comments and the students enjoyed getting to know him.

“We hope he will come and visit us again soon.”
