Thursday 20th March 2003, 9 of our pupils visited
Millennium Point to go to the Young Peoples Parliament. The day
began with a very striking Power Point Presentation with moving
music and thought provoking questions like... "If there is
a God then why is there suffering in the world?"
The whole YPP did a survey using the electronic
keypads on each chair about moral dilemmas, the results came
immediately on the large screens, you can see these on the digital
We were then spoken to by Roop Singh a renowned
speaker, again he was very thought provoking.
The lads were then put into seminar groups where
they discussed issues such as war, abortion and organ donation.
The day was interupted by BBC camera crew who
were filming for the evening news, unfortunately this was not
broadcast. Mr. Lomas and Michael Skerrett were also interviewed by
the Evening Mail, we hope that this will be published.
The day ended with a discussion of the topics
with representatives of the different faith communities - Christian,
Jewish, Sikh and Muslim.
It was a day where our pupils had the chance to
experience the diversity of our great city, they behaved extremely
well and were a credit to KNBS.
