Pupils team up to fight sectarianism problem

pupils at Bellshill’s two secondary schools have teamed up to develop a project aimed at helping to combat sectarianism.

A group of senior pupils from Catholic school Cardinal Newman High and non-denominational Belllshill Academy are making a film on the issue.

And their efforts were given the approval of Scotland’s top legal prosecutor, Lord Advocate Frank Mulholland, when he visited them to get first-hand details of their progress.

The project is being run through the LensHeads, the film school based in Bellshill Academy, after it was commissioned by the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal service to create a hard-hitting script highlighting the implications of getting involved in sectarian behaviour.
