Antarctica Day Flag Competition

Students in year 7 took part in celebrating Antarctica Day on 1st December in Geography lessons. Antarctica Day remembers and celebrates the day that 12 countries signed the Antarctic Treaty in 1959. The signing of the treaty was the first of its kind at the time and confirmed that Antarctica was to only be used for scientific research and collaboration between countries.  

Students celebrated by participating in The UK Polar Network challenge ‘Create a flag for Antarctica’. Students showed their character to create some fantastic designs and Serena G’s (7LRO) design was sent to Ingrid Holder at Rothera Research Station in Antarctica.  

Ingrid’s role is a “Programme Planner and Resource Manager” for the Antarctic Infrastructure Modernisation Programme (AIMP) where we they are constructing buildings and renewing the aircraft to support future science. As a planner, Ingrid looks at when each project will run in relation to other activities and what resources are needed to do it.
