Katie Higgins, Morgan Nicolson and Marcus Spence represented the youth of Lochaber during this day. The day kicked start with young people sharing their views about the important topics they would like to discuss. They then were given the opportunity to hold votes about the most urgent areas to address in order to make Scotland a better place. They also got to share their #wish for Scotland before listening and asking question to Angela Constance the Cabinet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning.
After a nice lunch, full of animated discussions Katie, Morgan and Marcus received this special visit thanks to an invasive Twitter campaign inviting the First Minister to their table. They got to briefly discuss their ideas. The First Minister declared being “ overwhelmed” by the ideas and the enthusiasm of the children and was henceforth made late for her Cabinet meeting.
