On the 30th of May, MEP Marian Harkin visited Glinsk NS, to talk about her role as an MEP. Emily and Caoimhe wrote to Marian as part of our Blue Star Programme. Marian was very generous with her time, answering all the pupils’ questions on her life as an MEP, discussing the role and history of the EU, speaking to each child individually about his/her project and even sat down to play some board games with each group. Marian decided not to seek re-election as a MEP for Midlands North West constituency and is retiring as an MEP on July 1st. Glinsk NS had the privilege of being the last school she will visit as an MEP.
