A GROUP of pupils from Motherwell’s Calder Primary enjoyed a morning out of school as they received a tour of North Lanarkshire Council’s headquarters.

Provost Jim Robertson and local councillor Peter Nolan gave the P6 and P7 pupils a tour of the Motherwell building where they met some of the councillors and staff, and they enjoyed a question and answer session in the Council chambers.

Provost Robertson said: “It was a pleasure to welcome the pupils and their teachers to our headquarters so they could learn a bit more about the council.

“The children were a credit to the school, very well behaved and really enthusiastic about their visit.”

The pupils also had the opportunity to talk to the Provost and Councillor Nolan about their day to day tasks and ask questions about other aspects of the council’s work.

Declan Kelter (10), said: “It was a brilliant day out. It is a great view from the top floor of the building across Motherwell and meeting the Provost was great.”

Hope Robertson (11), added: “It was exciting to be in the council chamber and to ask the Provost questions about what happens in there.”
