Year 8 students have been studying Antarctica and the cryosphere this term. They had the opportunity to take part in the UK Polar Network’s national “Design a flag for Antarctica” competition which is an annual competition aimed at increasing awareness of the challenges facing this continent.
Students were tasked with creating a flag that represented geography and Antarctica, it had to be colourful and eye catching so that it would stand out in the snow and the top 3 entries were chosen to be entered into the national competition.
We were so impressed with the quality of the entries and the creativity many of our year 8 students showed with their flag designs. It was very hard to choose our winners and we are very pleased to announce them as Ella F, Josh F and Liv W who receive our geography star trophies. These students’ entries now have the chance for their flags to be taken to Antarctica and displayed as part of a research mission.
Congratulations to all students on their participation in this unique competition.
