QE boys win top prizes in competition

QE boys picked up two first prizes in the annual World Citizenship Competition run by the Barnet Baha’i Faith Group. There were three categories in the competition on the topic of Living in a diverse society. What is our role and responsibility? The categories were for best poem, poster and essay.

Tochi Onuora won first prize in the Poem section, with Soham Chatterjee and Joel George taking second and third places. Christopher Suen was placed first in the Essay category, while Sachin Ghelani took second prize in the Poster competition. Shivakaron Shankar, Agrim Manchandra and Taehee Baek all received Certificates for Effort.

The boys, all from Year 7, received their prizes and certificates at a special ceremony hosted by the Mayor of Barnet.

“It is a testament to the boys that they won first place in two out of the three categories,” said Religious Studies teacher Sarah Jones. “It demonstrates that QE students are able to think through and communicate spiritual, moral and religious issues.
