Potters Bar schoolchildren meet Gordon Brown
FIVE lucky schoolchildren from Potters Bar were given the chance to meet Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
George Fennell, Alex Pratten, Emma Prior, Shriya Ruparelia and Neha Santhosh chatted to the premier at the House of Commons following Prime Minister’s Questions.
They then rounded off their day by enjoying a packed lunch.
The youngsters – all of whom are Year 6 students at Ladbrooke JMI School in Watkins Rise – were invited to visit Westminster by the Attorney General Baroness Scotland QC.
The invite followed the peer’s visit to the school during anti-bullying week in November 2008.
