Local students in Parliamentary RE debate

Steve Brine met up with students from Perins on Wednesday 13th July as Parliament held its first Youth Debate on Religious Education.

The event was an opportunity for young people to share their views with each other and a group of Guest Delegates on the role of RE in schools today in the auspicious surroundings of the Palace of Westminster.

The debate was be chaired by Year 12 students, who have extensive experience of running these types of events through the Model United Nations, an entirely student-led programme. Samilah Naira and Anisa Khalique have been part of the leadership dais for six years, and having passed through the ranks from Rapporteur, they have chaired more than ten 2-day conferences between them and have represented the UK in the USA.

As well as Chairs, there were MPs making up a panel of Guest Delegates who had the the opportunity to sum up and raise further issues.

Speaking afterwards, Steve said: "I was so pleased to be able to take part in this event, and as ever, I was thoroughly impressed by the young people who came to take part in Parliament at work. It was great to see a contingent from Perins, and I hope they enjoyed the day."
