The Oxbridge Project on current affairs
Sadek, 8B: This Tuesday afternoon, the Oxbridge Project had a current affairs meeting. During this discussion, we read and debated over an article based on Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi winning the Nobel Peace Prize. We debated some challenging questions such as whether these winners were the right choice for the prize and whether the positive impact someone had was affected by their age.
Darnell approved of Malala getting the prize because she is an 'inspiration'. However, Alfie thought that the shooting was the starting and most significant event that gave her international recognition.
Finally, the winner of the Oxbridge Project summer essay competition was Abubakr in 9B, who won a Google Nexus 7 tablet. Hajar, Ezra, Sadek, Omar and Felix were highly commended on their essays.
