On Friday 3rd July Year 7 students at Kingsbury High School took part in the Send My Friend to School campaign 2015.
2015 is an important year – world leaders will gather this September in New York to decide how to tackle global poverty over the next 15 years. The Send My Friend to School campaign asked young people to ‘step into the shoes of world leaders’ and tell their local MPs how they would deliver a better future for children all over the world.
With this theme, students spent the first part of the day learning about the barriers to education millions of children in the developing world face. Students then made world leader figures with messages about what they would do if they were a world leader. These will be passed on to MP for Brent North, Barry Gardiner, to take to the House of Commons.
Students completed the day by making the shape of an eye on the school playground to tell world leaders: “We’re watching you!”
