Last week 13 students from Prendergast-Ladywell Fields College represented the Tower of London in the 2012 UNESCO Youth Summit at the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site … have a look at our photo gallery!For three days (27th – 29th June) 80+ young people across the UK were immersed in cultural heritage. Students came from all over the country – one group came as far as Scotland, representing the Heart of Neolithic Orkney!
As part of the conference we took a boat trip to Ravensbourne, a specialist university in digital technology. It was here five of our winning students walked onto a live recording studio and were interviewed about their project.
This recording will be featured at the Olympics! Look out for our World Heritage champions on the big screen throughout major parks where the Olympic Games will be shown.
This was an exciting opportunity for young people to celebrate, and learn about what we as a nation consider to be significant and has outstanding universal value to humanity.
I thorougly enjoyed working with our local school in Lewisham. Thanks to an enthusiastic teacher, Rocky Haines and an engaging group of young people.
