RE Politics 16+ Question Time
Students from A-Level RE and A-Level Politics attended the Question Time event on 13th November 2019 at Westminster Abbey with other schools. This was a great opportunity to interact and engage with panellist speakers from different areas of focus. This included: Samira Ahmed – BBC Journalist, Qari Asim MBE – Imam at Makkah Mosque, Reverent Laura Jorgensen, Agamemnon Otero MBE – founding director of Repowering and Rt Hon. Lord Willets FRS who used to be an MP for the Conservative Party.
Our students showed great poise and respect during the debate and discussion and even when the discussions got heated, our students were insistent in showing equal respect for all areas of topic and for the responses to the questions that were being asked.
Topics of discussion included: Brexit, trust from the electorate, climate crisis, creation by God, secularisation, equality in education, Islamophobia, LGBTQ education, equal pay and gender equality.
