TY Economics – Local Politician (Mark Wall) Visit In

4D recently welcomed Mark Wall to CPC as part of the Economics module. Mark is a Labour Party member of Kildare County Council and he outlined the work involved in being a local public representative.

The students had the opportunity to ask questions and engage with Mark on economic issues such as housing, roads, etc. There was also a discussion of the national economic situation. Mark explained the role of the county council – highlighting the breakdown of the annual budget. It was an interesting learning experience for the students and a great opportunity to gain an insight into the workings of local government.

We wish to thank Mark for taking the time to visit the school and meet our students.
