QE boys among the winners in World Citizenship Competition

Three QE pupils were among the winners in a local competition run by the Baha’i Faith Group.

The Year 7 boys’ achievement builds on successes by QE boys in previous years in the annual competition. This year, it involved creating a poem, poster or essay on the topic of ‘What is the purpose of religion?’

Samuel Li took first prize in the 10-12 age category for his poster design, while Ryun Pang came second. In the essay-writing section, Norbert Sobolak was in third place.

The boys were awarded their prizes at a ceremony hosted by the Deputy Mayor of Barnet, Councillor Hugh Rayner, at Chipping Barnet Library.

"The fact that QE boys have won in two out of the three categories demonstrates what a strong ability the students here have to think through spiritual, moral and religious issues," said teacher Dr Sarah Jones.
