A Level students take part in Question Time
On Thursday 13th October 2011, a group of avid A level Politics students, got to take part in a fantastic opportunity, being a part of “Ealing Question Time”. Accompanied by teachers, Mr Thomas and Mr Beale, the evening was definitely a night to remember. Taking place at Ealing Town Hall, the political forum was a perfect chance for us to vent our deepest feelings and emotions about local political issues.
Our evening was sensational- with fiery debates, curious questions, and one controversial local (who had to be taken out), the trip showcased the beauty of Politics; however, the real cherry on top, was the fact, that our school won the political quiz, winning free Thorpe Park tickets! This trip has explained to me why Politics is such a brilliant subject to take. Politics is current, constantly changing, and is something we can all get passionate about- this trip was definitely worthwhile! I was able, along with the rest of my classmates, to put my feelings out there, and show our fellow young people, my views. After participating in the Council Chamber, sitting in the trademark green leather seat, complete with a microphone and donning the proverbial politician’s look, I really began to feel like a proper politician! I really enjoyed this trip, and hope for many more, as its trips like this that leave a lasting impact on a subject. I’d like to thank the Politics Department for this trip, especially Mr Thomas and Mr Beale, for this wonderful opportunity!
