15 Modern Studies Advanced Higher and Higher pupils were given a unique opportunity on the 5TH November to take part in the democratic process. The entire Scottish Cabinet were hosting a question and answer session in the Ladywood Centre, Penicuik. The discussion was very open, and we can verify that the Cabinet did not see the questions beforehand. The Question and Answer session lasted for 1 hour 30 minutes, and afterwards the Cabinet had tea with the audience. Many of our students took this opportunity to be photographed with Nicola Sturgeon, and to speak with Ministers. This was an amazing insight into the workings of Cabinet, and students very much enjoyed the experience.
