Showing some HART: human rights competition success for GDST students

Two students from GDST schools have won prizes at the recent HART Prize for Human Rights awards, a creative competition for young people passionate about human rights; four more were highly commended.

Megan Leung from Newcastle High School for Girls won 2nd place in the Junior Essay Category, with Alice Smith (pictured above) from Norwich High School winning joint 3rd. Both students have won tea in the House of Lords with Baroness Cox, HART Founder and CEO.

Also commended in the Junior Essay category were Madeleine Burnham (Brighton Girls), Francesca McBride (Portsmouth High School) and Kajana Srikanthan (Blackheath High School) who were in the shortlisted entries.

Aanya Mukhtyar (Norwich High School) was shortlisted for the Junior Creative category.

They were among 18 students from the GDST who took part in the competition, out of a total of over 200 entrants. Congratulations to our girls who made the shortlist and, of course, our winners!
