Laura Dowling and Wendy Barnes Government & Politics students from Strode’s College, Egham, visited Brussels along with Mrs Anna Lindley (Laws Teacher) as part of an European Alliance Secondary School Competition. The students submitted essays on EU Citizenship and due to the quality of their work were invited to give a presentation to the Committee of the Regions in Brussels. Their presentation was on ‘Strode’s College and the local region’.
Mrs Lindley (Laws Teacher) remarked on: ‘How much the students enjoyed the experience and how well they integrated with students from across Europe.’ The students were also surprised about the enthusiasm for the EU by students from other nations. The students, in particular, now see the EU in a very different light and really appreciate the positive value that the EU gives to citizens across Europe. Thank you to Cllr Linda Gillham for her support of the students
