Student's badge reflects musical heritage

Harrison’s design a winner for Hard Rock Café

A Year 11 student at The Radclyffe School has had his design for a pin badge for the Hard Rock Café chosen to be on sale at the restaurant.

Harrison Radcliffe, 16, was one of fifty students who entered a competition organised by the school together with the Hard Rock Cafe. Harrison’s successful design will now join a select choice of badges that are sold through the Hard Rock Café in Manchester, raising funds for charity Forever Manchester.

Harrison, a talented musician himself, based his design on a treble clef, with the Hard Rock Café logo and a castle representing the ten metropolitan districts of Greater Manchester.

In a message of congratulation, the Hard Rock Café Manchester said, “Thank you so much for the hard work and effort that you put into designing the pin…Awesome work and many thanks.”

Teacher of Design & Technology Jennie Edwards said, “The competition was a great opportunity for students to work with Hard Rock Cafe. We are very proud that they judged Harrison’s design good enough to be produced for sale.”

Harrison will be presented with a framed copy of his design and the finished badge at the Year 11 students’ final assembly.

The school has developed a partnership with the Hard Rock Café since their involvement in a special STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) competition day organised at the school in July 2013.
