Statue Challenge Entries

A few weeks ago, students were invited to consider why statues should be put up in the first place.  The scene was, Kendrick had five empty plinths to put statues of people from history.  The challenge was to choose five individuals and to write up to 500 words to justify their choices.  They had to think about the individual's achievements, attitudes and actions.  

The entries submitted display an excellent quality of work, from the range of individuals nominated, and the way in which they linked to the values and ethos of the school.  

Martin Luther King received the most nominations, followed by Nelson Mandela, Rosa Parks, Florence Nighingale, Hariet Tubman and Marie Curie.  

Well done to all those who entered!  They will receive a History prize when they are back in September.
