12 Fifth Form pupils yesterday met virtually to discuss the impact of Covid 19 on the twelve countries they researched and have personal experience of: the UK, Nigeria, Turkey, Singapore, Hungary, Australia, Spain, Italy, the United States, China, Sweden and of course Ireland.

Each pupil wrote 500 words on his/her country and this was shared with the group in advance of the discussion in order for the chat to be evidence-based. They plan to pull together some form of publication of the research and the findings of the discussions

The topic for next Wednesday’s session is: “Imagining a better post-covid world- what changes should we make and how can governments implement them?”

If anyone else would like to join the discussion, please mail Ms Duggan.
