Last week, I visited at St. Katharine’s Primary School in Bournemouth to talk with students about their work on the ‘Send my Friend to School’ campaign, which aims to get every child around the world in to education.
Around 57 million children around the world are currently not in primary education; approximately 24 million of those children have a disability. This is simply not good enough and it is fantastic to see local schools in Bournemouth supporting this cause.
I was impressed at the great work that the students of St. Katharine’s – including their Student Council, School Pulse – are doing to promote this issue, producing artwork and joining the UK-wide petition to the Government on this issue.
I very much support this campaign and enjoyed the chance to see first-hand how pupils at St. Katharine’s are tackling such an important issue.
