Students of the Ashley School at the WCSQM Awards Ceremony 2021
In 2021 Ben, Chloe and Elsie from The Ashley School attended the WCSQM Awards Ceremony. Here they discuss their visit, thinking about the experience and how they felt.
It took us over four hours to get there. It was fun.
I enjoyed the tour and seeing all the buildings. Oxford is quite ‘posh’ and seemed ‘richer’ than Lowestoft. There were some homeless people though.
I enjoyed the experience. I enjoyed the BIG Questions, it made us think.
I felt important and proud to have the opportunity to go to Oxford, as I had not been before. The buildings were amazing and old, we knew some of them from the Harry Potter movies. It was interesting to actually see them.
The ceremony was very, very good, with music and dancing. We sat right up high.
I was really excited and proud to see Callum on stage receiving his award for the WCS essay that he wrote and representing our school.
I would like to be able to visit Oxford again. I think I will always remember the experience it was awesome.
Callum, Year 9, was chosen by renowned author Dan Freedman as the runner up for the WCSQM Essay Competition 2021, and commended at the WCSQM Awards Ceremony in December 2021. You can read Callum’s essay on the essay competition web page.
