Today (Wednesday 24th February), four girls from year 6 travelled to London to Portcullis House at Westminster as part of our Tech Future Girls Club.
Redgate were invited to attend a parliamentary showcase by Hewlett Packard Enterprise, sponsors of the club. After Prime Minister's Questions, MPs were invited to come and meet girls from ten schools from across the country to talk about Cyber Security.
Nicky Morgan, Secretary of State for Education, spoke to the girls about the importance of increasing the number of women working in IT and the breadth of jobs available. She encouraged them to continue developing their IT skills as they progress through their education.
Bill Esterson, MP for Sefton, called in and the girls enthusiastically and articulately talked about their ideas for an app and tested Bill on his Cyber Security knowledge.
It was a privilege for Redgate to be invited to the event and our pupils were wonderful ambassadors for our school - well done girls.
I am sure they will be eager to write a blog post to tell everyone about their trip, including the special present that they were given by Hewlett-Packard Enterprise - watch this space!
