Wallace High School Sixth Year students who visited
Stormont on the historic final day of office of Ian Paisley.
WALLACE High School Government and Politics
students recently had the opportunity of a lifetime when they
visited The Northern Ireland Assembly on a historic occasion,
the final day of Dr Ian Paisley's day in office.
Lower sixth student
Erin Graham explained,"When we arrived at
Stormont we were taken on a guided tour of the assembly which
really helped us understand our local political system and gave
us a glimpse into a politician's life. We then met our local MP,
Jeffrey Donaldson who
took us to Castle buildings which house the
Office of the First and Deputy First Ministers." Andrew McCabe
went on, "We also enjoyed a question and answer session with Mr
Donaldson which was very thought provoking, before meeting the
First Minister Dr Ian Paisley."
Teacher Julie Dumigan concluded, "We' thank Mr Donaldson and
Dr Paisley for giving of their time. The trip really helped
Politics come alive for the Wallace students. We are now looking
forward to visiting Westminster in June on our annual Sixth Form
