The Year 7 students participated in a campaign called ‘Send My Friend to School’ which aims to raise awareness of the inequalities that many children around the world face with education.
The students researched the successes and failures of the Millennium Development Goals and the recent Sustainable Development goals. They linked these goals specifically to the barriers some children face with access to education.
They researched what the different barriers are and why 2.6 million children do not have access to education. They learnt about real life stories which have both shocked and inspired them, and as a result, the students wrote about the importance of education and created keys to ‘unlock’ education for all.
The students also wrote to their local MP to express their interest and passion in the campaign. I am extremely proud of the students and how engaged they have been with the campaign, expressing themselves maturely throughout.
