Year 11 students at Long Sutton’s Peele Community College are investigating a range of issues as part of their GCSE Citizenship studies.

They include such topics as social isolation, renewable energy, the welfare system and the effects of air-brushing.

As part of the course they are required to select an issue which is a problem both locally and nationally, as well as conducting a suitable action to inform people about the problem.

After college on Wednesday, February 5, Daniel Drewry and Ellie Ketteringham gave a presentation to selected staff and students and invited members of the public, who all discussed the issue of social isolation and filled in questionnaires.
