Zoom meeting between pupils and the Minister of Education

Congratulations to Amy Jones Year 13 pupil who was involved in the first ever Zoom meeting between pupils and the Minister of Education, Peter Weir.  6 pupils from other schools took part in the question and answer session with the Minister and Amy asked a number of questions about what it would be like returning to school again in September during the pandemic.  Well done Amy in keeping the Minister on his toes and trying to give us some idea what it might look like in September.
