Lower 1 inspires the Politics Department
Well done to Lower 1 pupils Blake B, Martha L, Harriet D and Seb C for winning a Politics challenge organized jointly by the Lower School and the Politics Department.
The pupils were tasked with being Prime Minister for the day and considered local, national and global issues. They placed the cost-of-living crisis, conflicts, energy crisis, Climate Change, plastic, disability rights and homelessness firmly in their Prime Minister in-trays. The project was a wonderful opportunity for securing stronger ties between the Lower School and Upper School.
Laurence Ward, Head of Politics and International Relations, said, “I was delighted to receive a high turnout with exceptional ideas and solutions, which illustrates time and time again that young people of today are engaged in global issues. They took the time to apply care and empathy toward sensitive issues under the big umbrella of global issues”.
The four winners will be invited to a talk next term by the makers of the iconic Red Box, Barrow, Hepburn and Gale, who are eager to listen to their views.
