Vikki Slade visits The Purbeck School

Last week the Purbeck School Sixth Form had the privilege to welcome Vikki Slade, a local councillor and Lib Dem candidate for Mid Dorset & North Poole MP seat, to the school. Vikki spoke about a wide range of key political issues of the day; including Brexit, the NHS and our current education system.

Vikki then answered a number of challenging questions from our students, particularly focusing on Lib Dem policy on education, and what it is like to challenge an incumbent MP.

Students thoroughly enjoyed the session which gave them a wider perspective of what is going on in Politics at the moment. One student said: “Vikki’s experience as both a local councillor and a challenger of our local MP seat was very interesting to hear about.”

We would like to thank Vikki for coming in and we look forward to welcoming Michael Tomlinson MP for Mid Dorset & North Poole in the forthcoming weeks.
