Caroline recently attended Langney Primary School’s Careers day.
Caroline met up with the head Benjamin Bowles for the event last Thursday. She spoke about her journey to becoming an MP and what skills you need to succeed in politics.
She also led an assembly of 90 year six students and took questions from the pupils that ranged from public speaking skills, sports facilities, and potholes.
“One of the best parts of my job is visiting our wonderful schools and meeting and answering questions from curious young minds,” said Caroline.
“Langney is a nurturing and dynamic school and it was a pleasure to come to their careers day and see first-hand pupils’ ambitions for their futures. I hope I inspired them with my own story of why I entered politics after a shock diagnosis for my little boy. His life saving care in the NHS is at the heart of my political DNA.
“Thank you to the head, his staff and, of course, the pupils for such a warm welcome and a great time.”
Benjamin Bowles added: “I have spoken to yet more staff and children who REALLY enjoyed the session - enlightening and personable from Caroline - THANK YOU!
Children and staff alike are both saying how inspirational the morning was. Thank you so, so much.
