Clyst Vale’s Amnesty Group, coordinated by Ms Money and supported by Mrs Oldfield, has been raising the profile of Amnesty’s Niger Delta campaign. The photo may look like a cake sale to raise funds for Amnesty, and it raised a total of £93.40, but it had a very serious educational purpose. In the Niger Delta, oil exploration is threatening the livelihood of millions of people, there is a legal case currently being brought against the oil company by Nigerian villagers in the USA, and (by coincidence) 92 people were killed in the Niger Delta when a petrol lorry crashed on the same day as the cake sale. The College’s curriculum is much more than just lessons, and the Amnesty group contribute a great deal to broadening students’ awareness and horizons.
