A PROMINENT human rights campaigner visited Oxford pupils to discuss global issues.

Cheney School in Headington has held its second Global Awareness Day, which was opened by Amnesty International UK's director Kate Allen.

The school's Rumble Museum holds the event annually to engage students with important topics, and this year's focused on human rights and poverty.

Ms Allen spoke to students and took part in a question and answer session, after which Oxfam, Christian Aid and Oxford University Amnesty Group opened stalls for sixth formers to learn about their work.

Oxfam's stall focused on arms trade, while Amnesty and Christian Aid both explored the plight of refugees.

After school, the event continued with two workshops staged by Oxfam and Christian Aid, which was open to older students and explored climate change and food supply chains.

Lorna Robinson, director of the museum, said: "Kate's talk was informative, thought-provoking and often very moving, and we are very grateful to her for all her time and energy.

"We are hugely grateful to all our stall runners and workshop runners for such engaging, educational and inspirational stalls and workshops, and to Kate for her stimulating talk."
