Sawston Village College recently hosted a visit by Andrew Lansley MP to discuss the ‘Send my friend to school’ campaign that highlights the fact over 67 million children globally miss out on education.
Years seven to nine produced Go for Gold! medals and spoke out for education by including personalised messages outlining the importance of education for all.
Pupils sent their medals to local MP and former Health Secretary Andrew Lansley and to Prime Minister David Cameron.
A group of ten pupils from years eight, nine and ten met with Mr Lansley to discuss the campaign and their views on education for all children.
They shared statistics and ideas to raise awareness of why investing in education is so important.
Spurred on by a letter from Mr Cameron, pupils will research the priorities outlined by the Department for International Development and continue to take part in the ‘Send my friend to school’ campaign to educate all children by 2015.
