The School Council from Waldringfield Primary School travelled to Westminster this week, as they visited Parliament's brand new education centre.
Therese said: "It was a huge pleasure to welcome the School Council to Westminster. We talked about their manifestos and compared notes on the huge responsibility of being elected. Whilst they were there they learnt how Parliament works, including the process of passing legislation through both the House of Commons and House of Lords.
I always encourage schools from Suffolk Coastal to make the trip to Westminster and hope to welcome more Suffolk pupils to Parliament in the coming months."
Merry Christmas. I hope you enjoy your celebrations with family, friends and neighbours.
My office is now closed re-opening on Tuesday 3rd January. Messages will not be checked during this time.

Felixstowe Ferry Sailing Club visited Parliament last week for one of their club social evenings.
Therese said: "I had the pleasure of welcoming Felixstowe Ferry Sailing Club to Westminster recently. They're a really friendly bunch and I thoroughly enjoyed spending some time with them. I was pleased to learn that Felixstowe has produced some world champion sailors over the years and if getting out and about more will be one of your new year's resolutions, they'd be delighted to hear from any potential new members."
You can find out more about the club on their website.
