Alliance Party visit to WCB

Year 14 Talks Programme – Kate Nicholl (Alliance)

24 Feb

On Friday 24th February 2023, as part of our series of invitations to our local South Belfast MLAs, Wellington College hosted Kate Nicholl from The Alliance party to present a talk for our Year 14 pupils and undertake a Question & Answer session. Ms Nicholl spoke about her early years in Zimbabwe and her subsequent move to Northern Ireland.

The Question & Answer session saw an interesting discussion between Ms Nicholl and our pupils on issues including Irish unity, the Supreme Court verdict on Shamima Begum, education, and the cost-of-living crisis. There were also lighter moments as Kate revealed that her favourite musician was George Ezra and that she would like Florence Pugh to play her in a film. Our Year 14 students found the talk extremely engaging, and we would thank Kate for coming into Wellington College.
