This national campaign highlights the fact that 60 million children around the world are missing out on school and that over half of these children are girls.
Andrew had a lively discussion with class about why it is so important that all children across the globe are given the opportunity to learn. The children then showed Andrew the Ideal Teacher Puppets they had designed and the slogans they had made up in support of the campaign.
Andrew also took the opportunity to join in the Celebration Assembly with the whole school and presented certificates to the high achievers from each class this week.
Andrew Gwynne MP said:
“It was a great pleasure to talk the pupils at Audenshaw Primary School this morning.
“They showed a thorough understanding of why it is important that every child goes to school and the part that they can play in bringing this issue to the attention of government.
“It was clear that they had worked extremely hard on their puppets and campaign slogans and the pupils were a credit to class teacher, Mrs Lee, and the school.”
