Good citizens at QE

Year 7 QE boys swept the board in a competition about World Citizenship. The competition was run by the Baha’i community and was open to all the Barnet schools.

Pupils were invited to submit an essay, poem or poster drawing on their knowledge of what it means to be a good citizen. Niral Malde took first prize in the poster category; James Casey was first in the poem category, while Niraj Shah was adjudged to have produced the best essay. The QE boys won a cup for the School for best overall quality.

“The boys produced excellent work, which covered the causes of anti-social behaviour and ways in which it could be prevented,” said teacher Sarah Gibbons, of the Religion & Society Department. “All the competitors demonstrated their understanding of the need for unity to resolve world problems such as poverty, racism and the preservation of the environment. Their work and achievement was excellent and impressive.”
