Students from Archbishop Beck Catholic College attended the most recent Roscoe Lecture at St Georges Hall on 2nd December 2014. The speaker was Baroness Helena Kennedy QC, Leading Barrister and Human rights Expert. This lecture formed part of Liverpool’s John Moores University Roscoe Lecture Series and was also part of the Archbishop Beck Catholic College “Year of Celebration” commemorating the opening of the new college campus. The college was represented by two Debating society members Jon-Joe and James. Our pictures shows the students with the Baroness and also at the statue of William Roscoe in St Georges Hall.
Speaking after the event, Assistant Headteacher Bruce Hicks, said “this was a very engaging, hard hitting and emotive presentation, we actively encourage our young people not only to develop excellent standards in their academic life but we also provide opportunities for them to develop into and have a clear understanding of what a good citizen means in the Britain of today.”
The title of the Lecture was “Searching for justice in an unjust world.”
