A Baldock school had a distinctly Eastern European flavour last week with a Moldovan democratic visit.

Visitors from the National Democratic Institute for Internal Affairs in Moldova were esteemed guests as part of an annual visit centred on the democratic process taking place in the UK around the general elections.

The visit – which was set up by outgoing Arbury district councillor Andrew Young – saw the 11 guests speaking to the school’s five Year 11 mock election candidates.

Visitors also spoke to members of the junior and senior student council who told them about the work they do and gave them a tour of the school.

A school spokesman said: “It was a fantastic morning, and our visitors showed a keen interest, especially in the mock election process here in school!”
