Bingley Grammar School

Amnesty International Youth Awards.

Amnesty Int WritersI was delighted to see students from Years 7 to 12, enter the annual Amnesty International Youth Awards Reporting category this year.

Each year students are invited to write about a human rights issue of their choice. It could be about bullying, discrimination, refugees, child labour, world poverty or any human rights issue that students are passionate about. 

This year Bingley Grammar school students chose to write about a range of human rights issues including refugees, Islamophobia and being homeless.

Congratulations to all students who took part in the competition (Megan Watson, Libby Marsh, Poppy Ahern, Daniel Burniston, Masoomah Ahmed) And a huge well done to Halima Kamran and Maryam Peters who were shortlisted for their entries and made it to the top ten in their categories out of over 400 entries. 

I look forward to launching the competition again next year. Watch this space!

Miss Shah
