Yesterday, Gareth Gordon, a reporter for BBC Northern Ireland News, came to school to film a piece to go out across the BBC when the Assembly Election campaign begins in earnest on 4th April.

Filming our MVI Politics students, along with those from Domincan College, Fortwilliam, Gareth asked students about their thoughts on politics in NI and whether they believed the Good Friday Agreement had relevance in their lives.  While these students are politically engaged and looking forward to their first opportunity to use their vote, the students recognised that not all young people would share those views.

Students enjoyed the opportunity to talk with their peers from Fortwilliam about politics and getting to see how films like this for the news get made.  However, we wait with bated breath to see the results!
