I am writing to say how impressed I was about the film being made in Londonderry where a Catholic schoolgirl and a Protestant schoolgirl swap school uniforms for a day and try to experience life from another perspective (News, Dec 15).

They pose the question: "Wouldn't it be better if our schools weren't divided by religion?"

It is only common sense that fully integrated education can bring our divided communities together and also save the huge amont of money wasted on having a separate school system based on religion.

Shared schools are no substitute for shared education where all children are educated together.
