Pupils showed the Tory MP the school’s new allotment garden

Orpington MP Jo Johnson broke the ground of a new garden during a visit to a Petts Wood school last week.

On Friday, the Tory MP visited pupils at St James’ RC Primary School, where they asked him a number of questions on his work as an MP in Orpington and Westminster.

The head teacher of the single-form entry Catholic school, Lisa Weeks, took the universities’ minster on a tour during his visit.

While opening the new allotment garden, which is hoped to provide food for the school kitchen in the future, Mr Johnson planted a Victoria plum tree to mark the occasion.

Afterwards he said: “St James’ is a terrific school located on a fantastic site, and I am very grateful to the head teacher, Mrs Weeks, for taking the time to show me around. I particularly enjoyed talking to pupils about politics and my role as an MP.

“It was also a pleasure to open the school’s new garden, which will provide a hands-on and fun way for children to learn about growing their own fruit and vegetables and healthy eating.”
