A group of our students participated this year in the Cambridge Corpus Christi Essay Competitions.
For the Corpus Rackham Essay Prize for Biology, Wendy Gao wrote an essay on “Phantom Pain: a ghost in the machine, or a biological basis?” Her essay was commended by the judges, who emailed to congratulate her. Wendy has also arranged for work experience over the summer at the Haematology department at the JR, and is volunteering regularly at the Green Gates Home.
Max Ogdon also wrote an essay for the same Corpus Rackham Essay Prize for Biology, entitled “The Earth’s climate has heated and cooled many times during its history over a scale of millions of years. In this context do current concerns really matter and if so why?”. Max’s essay was highly commended by the judges – a great achievement especially given that Max does not actually study Biology for A level.
Here is Wendy, one of the students who participated in the Corpus Christi Essay Competitions! Congratulations to both Wendy and Max for their excellent work!
