Ellie wins place at the World Affairs Seminar

We are hugely excited to announce that Year 12 student, Eleanor Baker, has been selected to represent Bristol at the World Affairs Seminar in Wisconsin, USA, in June 2024. The seminar this year is entitled "Democracy and Governance: Evolvong Global Perspectives", this topic particularly interests Ellie as she's hoping to study history at university in the future and wants to develop her debating skills.

The week-long seminar involves students from over 50 countries and will take place at University of Wisconsin. Ellie will also spend a week with a host family in Milwaukee as part of her trip and is travelling with other students from the South West including Imogen Green from Bristol Cathedral Choir School (pictured second from left).

Ellie went through a lengthy interview process with the Clifton Rotary Club, who are sponsoring her and have organised and paid for her travel to the event. Ellie is raising funds to pay for accommodation and tuition while she is there. There will be fundraising events in school over the coming weeks, but if you would like to support her on this once-in-a-lifetime trip, you can contribute on her Just Giving page.

We're so proud of Ellie and wish her lots of luck with her fundraising efforts!
