Wellington College hosted the Candidate’s Debate for the Constituency of South Belfast on Friday 6th December 2019 featuring Claire Hanna (SDLP) and Emma Little-Pengelly (DUP). The politicians began with a 2-minute introduction of their policies to the audience, followed by a ‘Question and Answer’ session from the pupils.

We were joined by A-Level pupils from Aquinas Grammar and the event proved a great opportunity for our senior pupils (many of whom are first-time voters) to interact and debate with local politicians about local and national issues.
