Question Time

Our Headteacher, Mr Derek Kitchin, after a number of attempts of applying to be in the audience, got his opportunity at the filming of Question Time in Liverpool, in October 2014. He attended with his wife and was on the front row, within a metre or so of the panellists.
 
The panel for that evening included First Minister- Alex Salmond MSP, Labour’s Shadow Energy Secretary- Caroline Flint MP, Conservative Minister for Disabled People- Mark Harper MP, UKIP’s Louise Bours MEP and the leader of the Unite Trade Union - Len McCluskey.
 
During the show and shown on TV, Mr Kitchin got to put his point across about the very important topic of sentencing criminals who kill members of the police, relating this to teachers and nurses also.
 
Before the programme Mr Kitchin and his wife were lucky enough to meet David Dimbledy, the famous TV presenter. After the filming, they also met Alex Salmond, close up and in person, discussing with him the Scottish Referendum and other topics of importance to them including education and health.
 
Many students and staff saw the programme live on the night and PSHE / Citizenship groups watched it in school time during their lessons, emphasising for them the possibilities of ordinary people having a 'voice' and having opportunities to inform and influence local and national politics by expressing such views. as well as highlighting skills of commuication in 'speaking to persuade and influence'.
