Larbert High School pupils have won the Amnesty International Most Committed Group Campaigner Youth Award.
The school’s Amnesty Group have been involved in a number of campaigns, and since March last year, the campaigns have grown bigger and gained more and more support from the school population.
Humanities teacher Rosalind Bird said: “The group is dedicated to standing up for Human Rights and has worked hard all year, with a huge campaign for Human Rights week in December. The school has been extremely supportive, helping to make human rights education an integral part of the school ethos.”
The nine-strong team comprises of Sharlie Gilchrist, Richenda Rae, Hannah Fairbairn, Jack Thomson, Olivia Rae, Rebecca Ferguson, Rowan Graham, Waleed Khan, Max Cole,
Amnesty’s Youth Awards celebrate young people aged from 7-19 who creatively interpret a human rights topic through reporting, photography, song-writing and performing, fundraising and campaigning and this year 1300 young people entered.
