Essay competition

Winners of the essay competition at Bishop Wordsworth School
Winners of the Amnesty essay competition at Bishop's © Salisbury Journal

Following the #Citizenship day held at Bishop Wordworth's School in Salisbury last year, we offered a prize to that school and South Wilts to write an essay on the subject 'Is there still a role for human rights in the 21st Century?'  All three winners came from Bishops (sadly there were no entries from South Wilts) and the winning entries were presented with their cheques on Wednesday 29th January.  The funds were provided by a supporter and did not come from fundraising.

The winning entry was by Jackson Whitton and his and the other essays are attached to this blog.  

The school is keen to re-establish the amnesty group so there will more from them in future postings.
