WGS student wins 3rd prize in National HART Awards for Human Rights.

Congratulations to Lorna McBain (Year 12) who came 3rd in the national HART awards for Human Rights. 

The HART Prize for Human Rights is a competition for young people who are interested in global issues. Students are encouraged to examine and engage critically with crucial but under-reported human rights issues by conducting independent research and producing either a written or creative piece.

Students must write an essay about the political, humanitarian and human rights issues facing those living in one or more of the countries in which HART works, or to produce a creative piece of work about the humanitarian situation in any of the countries in which HART works, or on the main themes connecting them. 1st prize is £300 cash, an invitation for tea in the House of Lords with Baroness Cox and an optional week of work experience in the HART office.

Mr Armstrong, Head of Sixth Form says "I am thrilled for Lorna!" Lorna has given us to permission to share her poem. Please click here to read Lorna's winning entry.
