Good schooling provides a firm foundation for future

Editor's Viewpoint

Published 22/04/2016

Ian Harper is an example of what can be achieved when a good education is allied to creative thinking and entrepreneurial flair. The Drumbeg man has invented a video game which has been downloaded 300 million times and he has been back at his old school, Royal Belfast Academical Institution, to encourage others to emulate his success.

Gaming is an environment where fortunes can be made but it requires hard work, expertise and luck.

But none of that would be possible without the right educational building blocks. Only then will we see more Ian Harpers emerging to provide us with the next generation of entertainment and turning fun into wealth.
