Visit of East Belfast MP to Strathearn

Strathearn recently welcomed Gavin Robinson MP for a visit to the School where he met sixth form politics students and representatives of the School Council.

Mr Robinson shared a little of his background with the group and talked about life at Westminster.  He also fielded questions on feminism, the Irish Language Act, stereotypes in politics and youth engagement in politics.

Strathearn Principal Nichola Connery said, “We are always very keen to welcome members of the local community into the School to share their knowledge and experience with the girls.  It is a great opportunity for them to broaden their understanding of the many different roles that individuals play in society and to give them better insight in to the wold at large.  Mr Robinson was very generous with his time and gave the girls thoughtful and stimulating answers to their many questions.”
