Recently Rachel was invited by Castleton Primary School’s year 6 class to support their campaign for education for all children around the globe.
The pupils are actively engaged with a global project ‘Send All my Friends to School’ which brings together thousands of children across the UK to speak up for the right to education.
They explained to Rachel that they wanted her to get involved so that she could help spread the word about the project and take their message all the way to world leaders. Rachel keenly watched their entertaining and thoughtful ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire’ presentation about the facts and problems concerning global education. They also created a paper chain and art work which will be displayed in the classrooms.
Rachel said, “I was thrilled to be invited by Castleton Primary School’s Year 6 class to see their very interesting ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire’ presentation. The children were very engaged with the ‘Send All My Friends to School’ project, and had realised that a very good way of spreading a serious message was to make it fun. They have realised that they, even if might not always feel like it, are very lucky to have a school to go to and teachers who help them achieve their potential. However, many millions of children around the world are not so fortunate and it is brilliant that children in Armley want to highlight their right to an education too.”
