Local MLA is grilled by Year 10 Citizenship pupils

Local DUP MLA, Gordon Lyons, visited school recently to take questions from Year 10 pupils as part of their Citizenship course.

As part of the course pupils are required to study democracy and local government so, without a working executive in place, the pupils decided that they would contact some of their local MLAs, the Secretary of State and the leaders of the DUP and Sinn Fein.

Much to their surprise responses began to flood in. Over the space of a number of weeks they received responses from the Secretary of State's office, Alliance MLA Stewart Dickson, DUP MLA Gordon Lyons, UUP MLA John Stewart and a personal email from Arlene Forster, leader of the DUP.

The responses they received generated lots of classroom discussion and brought about many more questions that they wanted answered. It was, therefore, with great delight that they learnt that one of our local MLAs, Gordon Lyons, had agreed to come in to answer some of these questions for them.

The many questions posed to Mr Lyons ranged from general questions on the role of an MLA to specific questions around local government and constituency issues but it was those from Year 10 pupil Peter Wilson that proved to be the most thought out, well researched and challenging.

Mr Thomson, teacher of one of the Citizenship classes involved, said: "We are very thankful to Mr Lyons for taking the time to visit our pupils and give such detailed answers to their many questions. The process has proven to be a useful one for our class discussions and we therefore look forward to inviting more of our local MLAs into school in the new year."
