During Parkhall’s Transfer Evening,  in the English department, the Young Reporter club members gathered a lot of interviews from prospective parents and pupils.

As helpers on the night, we enjoyed our role and it was great to see so many smiling parents and people so happy to come and see our school. The English department had films, games, a VIP area, popcorn, The Sorting Hat from Harry Potter and us interviewing everyone!

Here is a selection of our interviews:

Casey-Lee from St Joseph’s Primary said that she was excited to meet new friends when she got to secondary school. Her favourite part of the school was art, her friend Cassidy that also attended St Joseph’s primary said that her favourite part of the school was English and she was excited to make new friends and have new teachers.

Ethan from Carnaghts said he was surprised at how big the school was and that his favourite part of the school was the English Department.

Sam and Lucas from Temple Patrick Primary said that their favourite parts were the library and Lucas said that he was looking forward to the canteen when he came to secondary school.

Alfie from Round Tower Primary school said “I am looking forward to sport in Parkhall.”

Jill from Ballyclare Primary School said she “liked the library and is looking forward to seeing her big sister”

Natalie from Ballyclare Primary “enjoyed science” she is looking forward to “a fresh start”

Amy from Carnaughts Primary school “enjoyed drama and is looking forward to making new friends”

Chloe Abbie from Templepatrick thinks “Parkhall is a great school and is looking forward to different classes like H.E.”

We thoroughly enjoyed our first interview duty as reporters and hope you enjoy our article!
