AS Politics Trip to Parliament Buildings

On Tuesday 18th November thirteen of the School’s Lower Sixth politics students, accompanied by teachers Mrs Sullivan and Mrs Peel, were afforded the opportunity to participate in the annual AS Level Politics trip to Parliament Buildings, Stormont.

During the visit pupils were invited to sit in the Assembly Chamber whilst a live debate on the Marshall Report was taking place. The pupils then received presentations from a number of MLAs and other Stormont officials, including a committee clerk, Ross Brown (Green Party), Chris Lyttle (Alliance), Michael McGimpsey (UUP) and Robin Newton (DUP), during which the students were praised for their excellent questioning.

Additionally the pupils participated in a 'Shared future, Integrated Education' research study, which also proved most worthwhile. It is hoped that the whole experience will greatly help students in their preparation for their AS1 Module on Northern Ireland politics.
