Sir Peter Tapsell, MP for Louth and Horncastle, went back to school last week as he paid a visit to Banovallum.
Greeted by Nicky Olive and Emma Storr, who Sir Peter referred to as his “bodyguards” for his tour around the school, he was shown round by Headmistress Nicky Shore.
Sir Peter said to Nicky as he was being lead to the technology block: “You’re very young to be a headmistress.
“I started in the House of Commons before you were even born.”
Nicky showed Sir Peter the creative arts departments; different aspects of technology and art, and the music departments.
Sir Peter was very engaging in each class he visited and spoke to different pupils about the work they were taking part in.
The Father of the House of Commons was introduced to violinist Erin Jeffrey during a lesson, and he was shown round the music class.
As the door to the school’s recording studio was opened Sir Peter asked how the school can trust its pupils to look after the facilities to which Nicky replied: “It’s not my school, it’s their school.
“We trust our pupils and they respond to that. We allow them to build that trust.”
Sir Peter was then given the opportunity to have tea with the Headmistress and Banovallum’s prefect team once his tour of the school finished, but not before he watched a dance performance by some enthusiastic students.
