A short documentary made by Gemma Kwok and Noa Horowitz from Year 11 has won the Best Entry in Asian History as part of the National History Day – China competition. Over 300 students from across China travelled to the award ceremony at Concordia School, Shanghai on 7th March. Their documentary looks at the leadership and legacy of Sir Murray MacLehose, Hong Kong’s 25th governor from 1971 to 1982. Kohana Wilson, Michelle Philip, Rafa Khan and Alexia Rutkowski were also finalist in the National History Day competition with their documentary about Alan Turing.
Head of History Jez Rowson said: “I am so proud of the students it is an amazing achievement to be named as finalists and winners in a competition that had entries from across China.”
