Top Honours for Pupils in International Essay Writing Competition

Year 10 students Kate Williamson and Elinor Haworth received honourable mentions for their contribution to this year's International 'Living Rainforest' Schools Essay Writing Competition.

The global essay competition and debate invites students from all over the world to share their views on the rights and responsibilities of different people, worldwide, in creating a sustainable future.

Both Kate and Elinor submitted winning essays, which looked at 'sustainability education and the ideas on how to achieve it'. This year's competition received over 900 essays from students and a distinguished panel of judges, drawn from experts and educationalists in the field, selected the winning entries for each age category. The winning students will be awarded trophies at the International Schools Debate and their essays will be published on the competition website.

Mrs Waddams, Head of Geography at Ellesmere, said "I am delighted that both Kate and Elinor entered the competition, both girls worked extremely hard addressing many of the issues we cover in Geography, and they definitely presented them well in their essays".
