Rutherford House have been baking, gaming and painting for Amnesty International this week, 12-16th October. Each class from Rutherford House decided on activities that would raise funds or awareness for Amnesty including; cake and pizza sales, a gaming tournament and painting henna tattoos. Year 10 Rutherford students did a sponsored silence to raise funds but also to highlight the issue of freedom of speech, one of the human rights that Amnesty campaigns for.
Senior Head of Rutherford House Mr Chan said; “I am delighted with the way our students linked up their activities with aspects of human rights. For instance, 7R did some research and attached information on the number of refugees from a wide range of countries on every piece of cake they sold! A fantastic effort all around, and special thanks to our Y12 students who led the House so ably.”
