Tiffin boys win prizes with presentations on British Human Rights

3 February 2017 by

On Wednesday 18th January, 16 Year 9 pupils travelled to Surbiton High School to give their presentations regarding different aspects of British Human Rights. After two months of hard work and having travelled to Queen Mary’s University for an induction day in November, the pupils in their groups of four had five minutes to present their dissertation from their chosen topic, which was followed by five minutes of questions from the audience for all groups.   The quality of work from the Tiffin groups, as well as the sixteen Surbiton High School girls was outstanding and their efforts were plain to see. All pupils were awarded with a certificate for their participation by the British Institute of Human Rights, who marked the groups’ work, and there were also four prizes on offer; one for the audience favourite, one for best dissertation methodology, one for best presentation on the night and one for best argument. Tiffin groups won two of these prizes, the best dissertation methodology and the best presentation on the night, but all involved deserved great praise for the standards of their work and the extensive efforts they put in between November and January, on a project that was entirely completed outside of lesson time. The best methodology on dissertations was awarded to Eyeol Abebaw-Mesfin, Arjan Madaher, Oscar Pearson and Sebastian Pereira, while the best presented research project went to Manik Aggarwal, Darshan Kumaresan, Joseph Manley and Mukund Pandey. It was great to see so many parents attending the presentation evening too; some very difficult questions were posed to the groups and this really added to the atmosphere of the evening.
