Students will be able to see how democracy works under new scheme
HUNDREDS of students have been given the opportunity to see democracy in action.
Students from across Wales are being urged to come forward and voice their views and try and offer answers to some of the big issues affecting their lives.
It is part of a joint scheme between S4C, the National Assembly and ITV Cymru Wales's Hacio programme.
The debating events which are labelled Hacio'n Holi (Hacio Asks) will take place in eight schools Wales-wide over the next two weeks, including at Ysgol Dyffryn Aman in Ammanford on Thursday.
Between 70 and 100 people will be taking part in the school sessions before groups are given the chance to make their mark in the National Assembly.
The issues they will debate range from image, cyber bullying and social media, along with dealing with the pressure of exams and job hunting and also they will discuss the Welsh language.
Rosemary Butler AM, the Presiding Officer of the National Assembly, said: "It is great for the National Assembly for Wales to be able to support S4C and ITV Wales in this venture."
