Esme in Year 12 is very keen on Geography. Whilst reading up on the subject before Christmas, she found details of a competition to represent the UK at iGeo2020 at the International Geography Olympiad. She completed a project on fires in the Amazon Basin, and I can testify she worked really hard on it.
Earlier this week she found out that she has been picked for Team UK by the Geographical Association, who were judging the competition. This means she is one of only four 16-19 year olds in the country to go. She will be travelling to Istanbul with the team in August, to compete against young people from about 50 countries worldwide.
Congratulations Esme, we can't wait to hear about your trip!
