ELECTION 2015: Parliamentary candidate gives talk at The Windsor Boys' School

The future generation of voters from a Windsor school grilled one of the constituency’s Parliamentary candidates at a talk on Tuesday.

SCHOOL VISIT: Adam Afriyie with The Windsor Boys' School students Nick Chevis and Alex Serrano

Sixth form students at The Windsor Boys’ School gave Conservative candidate Adam Afriyie a tour of the school before quizzing the politician on the issues facing young voters.

Topics including the legalisation of cannabis, voter apathy and a potential reduction of the voting age were all discussed during a lively debate.

The event was organised by outgoing head boy Nick Chevis, 18, with the aim of getting students involved in the political process.

Students presented Mr Afriyie with his very own school tie after the event.

Deputy head boy Tom Pausey said: “The event was a credit to the school.

“We’ve seen that there’s quite a strong interest from students who want to hear what politicians have to say.”
