Two Croxley Danes School students headed to the Houses of Parliament on November 14, to champion a worldwide campaign to prioritise education across the globe.
Emma and Jess visited the Houses of Parliament to champion the Education in Emergencies campaign organised by Send My Friend, a non-profit organisation that calls on world leaders to prioritise education and make sure all children have the chance to go to school.
Emma and Jess sat with Melinda Bohannon, Director General, Humanitarian and Development, to discuss global educational issues, and took part in a speed meeting with MPs which provided an excellent opportunity to discuss the organisation’s work and goals.
A spokesperson from Croxley Danes School said: “We are so proud of Emma and Jess and how they have taken on their roles as Send My Friend campaign champions.
“Not only have they represented the campaign in Parliament, but also at the Labour Party conference in October and throughout the year, where they have attended training sessions, run workshops, written articles and delivered assemblies to local primary schools to spread the message.
“Emma and Jess’s time in Parliament last week proved to be a wonderful experience. Congratulations Emma and Jess on doing such an impressive job of representing Croxley Danes and the Send My Friend Campaign in your roles as Campaign Champions and fighting for such an important cause.”
