OG Rosie Thompson returned to Coll recently to give a lecture to the Lower Sixth on 'Journalism in the Middle East'
The Lower Sixth were tremendously engaged by the recent lecture and it was a great pleasure to welcome OG Rosie Thompson (2004-2006, Lothian) back to Coll.
The pupils were much affected and inspired by her description of her personal experiences as a photo journalist in the Syrian war zone where she has made news films organisations such as Al Jazeera and the United Nations. during the lecture, Rosie showed three examples of her work relating to the lives of refugees.
We would all like to extend our gratitude to Rosie for her time. She is already back in Turkey continuing her work.
