The first initiative that our school parliament have decided to become involved with is ‘SEND MY FRIEND TO SCHOOL’. This initiative aims to ensure that every child in the world gets a quality education.
The school parliament will lead an assembly to introduce the initiative to the rest of the school, showing videos of some of the poorest schools in the world and discussing the differences between our education and theirs. Following the assembly, class representatives will encourage their peers to make a jigsaw piece which explains why education is important. The school PM will then write a letter to the local MP, Preet Gill, calling her to speak up for the right to education by sending the jigsaw pieces to the Secretary of State for International Development.
Education is powerful and so are our pupils- that is why they are calling for more investment in global education.
