Máirtín Ó Muilleoir ‏ visits our Year 8 Youth Parliament

The Youth Parliament: The Voice of the Future!

Mrs Mc Gurran, Miss Cregan and Miss Bogues would like to congratulate the members of St Joseph’s College Year 8 Youth Parliament.

Máirtín O Muilleoir, politician and former Lord Mayor of Belfast, met the Youth Parliament on Friday 13th November. He observed their impressive debate in response to the motion, “Categorisation of schools as ‘secondary’ or ‘grammar’ causes division amongst pupils.” Students posed many challenging questions in relation to the political arena and quizzed Mr O Muilleoir on his experience of Stormont.

Mr O’ Muilleor congratulated our students and shared several tweets to celebrate their success. He has invited the Youth Parliament to visit him at Stormont and we look forward to our visit!

New members of the Youth Parliament should attend Miss Bogues’ meeting on Thursday 19th November at 3:35p.m.
