Students praised

STUDENTS at Southern Regional College, Lurgan were recognised for their Make it Right campaigning on Children in Care, by the Commissioner for Children and Young People, Patricia Lewsley.

The Commissioner’s ‘Make it Right’ campaign, encourages children, young people, parents, carers, and teachers to campaign on children’s rights and bring their messages directly to the attention of decision-makers.

SRC students petitioned Michael McGimpsey, Minster for Health, Social Services and Public Safety, to take into consideration the rights of children and young people in care and to make sure they are listened to when decisions are made about issues that affect them.

“I congratulate everyone at the college for the initiative that they have shown,” said Ms Lewsley.
