PUPILS at a Cheltenham school became members of Parliament for one day yesterday to create their own law.

Media students at All Saints' Academy produced their own video in order to propose new legislation.

The video, about food recycling, was made for a competition run by the Government called 'Lights, Camera, Parliament'.

Pupils worked together to produce a three-minute film to explain how the law should be implemented.

Organiser Kerri Skelding, said: "The students worked very well together which was great to see as there was a range of ages involved.

"We definitely have some budding film-makers in the group.

"They really took control of the project and there was some outstanding performances to camera.

"It was great for the students to be involved with talking about politics and looking at the structure in place for creating a law."

Year 7 pupil Jack French, who helped present the video, added: "I have really enjoyed today.

"It's been great working with other students and learning a bit more about the film-making process."
