Local schoolgirl interviews Meg for education film

Thursday, November 29, 2012

Sheffield schoolgirl Carly Royles 11, from Meadowhead School, interviewed MPs in Parliament for a short film which the education charity FILMCLUB produced for Parliament Week 2012 - (19th-25th November). This week is a national initiative to help young people learn about and engage with parliamentary democracy.  

Carly was chosen from hundreds of FILMCLUB members around the country to be a Young Reporter for the charity and received special training as part of its Talent Development scheme. She quizzed Meg Munn MP and her questions included: “What leader or hero from the past do you most admire and why?”, “I am not old enough to vote, how would you convince me to be interested in politics?” and “What film would you recommend we watch to learn about democracy?”

Commenting on the experience Carly said:

“I’ve learnt not to be so worried about things and to have more confidence. I’ve really enjoyed interviewing all the MPs and I’m really grateful to everybody who’s made this possible.

My favourite interview was with Meg Munn because we have a lot in common seeing as we’re both from Sheffield, and she seemed really nice and like she was interested in what we were doing. I really enjoyed the whole experience. I wanted to be involved because when I’m older I could do something to do with politics and it’s helped me to learn a bit more about it.”

Meg said:

“Carly did a fantastic job of interviewing me outside Parliament. I was really impressed with the amount of effort she had put in to preparing for the interview, which really showed.

I’m sure she’d make a great reporter if she decided to go into journalism. I’m looking forward to seeing the completed film soon when I visit the school during Parliament Week.”

In addition to the short film, made in partnership with Parliament’s Education Service, FILMCLUB has produced an in-depth teaching guide  enabling schools to explore stories of democracy through film and take part in related activities such as holding their own debate, visiting a museum, hosting a special screening for their local MP or creating a school pledge. Highlighted in the Guide are 12 hand-picked films six of them specially selected for primary and six for secondary - relating to the themes. The guide is free to download from: http://www.filmclub.org/
