Last term, Oliver A and Jake B (5th Form), entered the International Schools’ Essay Writing Competition as part of their activities in the Debating and Writing Club.
The competition, which is ran by The Trust for Sustainable Living, invited school children from around the world to write an open letter to the newly-elected UN Secretary General, outlining their ideas for practical climate change.
Oliver and Jake researched and wrote 600 words with the title “We Can Beat Climate Change by 2030”. Out of 1,229 entries from 77 different countries, Oliver and Jake did remarkably well. Oliver was selected as a finalist being placed in the top 10% and Jake was given an Honourable Mention.
