Visit from Alex Sobel MP

26th November 2021
We were delighted to welcome our MP, Alex Sobel, to Westgate this morning. He visited Celebration Assembly and handed out certificates to children.
A highlight was Alex unveiling the 150th anniversary artwork that the whole school has created with artist Sharon Snaylam, which will be going on permanent display in school hall in the new year!
After assembly, Alex spent time with Eco Team, listening to their concerns about road safety near school, and was happy to receive a copy of the pupils' petitions to ask for an additional pedestrian crossing and to make the School Streets restrictions on Scarborough Road permanent. The children were really pleased to have their elected MP listening to their voices on this important matter. Having learned about democracy and government in UK parliament week earlier this term, it was very meaningful to meet our member of parliament.
Thank you to Alex for making the time in his busy schedule to visit Westgate today.
