Children from John Gulson School Council were able to visit the Houses of Parliament in London to discover were the country is run. Children were taken on a tour including being able to stand in the house of commons and sit in the gallery of the house of Lords to listen to an ongoing debate. After the tour children were taken to the education center where they made their own bill even getting the pretend Queen Zainab to sign off on the bill. The children were then treated to a ride on the London Eye and the River Thames. The children were a credit to the school and had a fabulous day.
