On Monday 30th June, a group of KESH Year 12 students took part in a Politics day at King Edward’s School on Edgbaston Park Road as part of the MAT. The student’s collectively put together a robust manifesto and delivered it to a high profile audience against 11 other King Edward’s Schools. They did us proud against the other students, many who had a detailed knowledge through their study of A level Politics. KESH Sixth form had an excellent, well planned and delivered manifesto. The Mock Prime Minister Diyana Raeesah and Armaan Rashid were particularly excellent due to their strong execution, leading us to be joint 5th place with King Edward’s Girls.
All students agreed they had an amazing day and fully enjoyed listening to Jess Philips our local MP and Andy Street, the Mayor of the West Midlands, answering some very difficult questions! Other notable guests included Nisha Pillai (BBC World News), Tandayi Bloom (Lecturer in Politics and International Studies, University of Birmingham), and Mark Webber (Professor of International Politics, University of Birmingham).
