STUDENTS at Chiltern Edge School in Sonning Common have won an award for a human rights campaign.
The school’s Amnesty Ambassadors group was presented with the award from Amnesty International at the charity’s headquarters in Shoreditch.
The pupils won the best campaign activity group prize in Oxfordshire for a series of assemblies they gave on human rights.
They had urged other students to take part in Amnesty International’s Write for Rights campaign, which encourages people across the world to write letters demanding rights of individuals be respected.
The group comprised Qamar Ayoubi, Adam Butlin, Josh Hankins, Izzie Giles-Smithers, Dillon Brunt, Laurie Martin, Fabian Sayer-Wade, Jamie-Lee Roach and John Ikwumonu.
They said: “We believe it’s important to exercise our right to free speech and that we have a duty to do all we can to right the wrongs in the world.”
