This club is for anyone interested in current affairs, politics or who like to have their say about what is going on in the world. The Thought Forum is a chance to meet with similarly interested people and have the opportunity to say what you think about things that matter to you.
As your confidence and skills develop there will be opportunities to debate, meet writers, journalists, documentary and film makers, attend conferences, meet with other groups at other schools and ultimately enter for the National ‘Orwell Youth Prize’. Last year our group entered the Rotary Youth Speaks Competition and progressed through to regional finals! The year ended with a trip to Oxford University where one of our group was awarded a prize for her entry in the George Orwell Youth Prize. We are also currently developing an online blog in which we can share articles, opinions and thoughts on matters that interest us.
Remember, you have a voice. Use it.
