Hemel Hempstead MP, Mike Penning, visited Boxmoor Primary School recently to meet Year 3 pupils who had written letters to the Prime Minister about the “Send my friend to school” campaign.
 
The children have written letters to the Prime Minister calling on him to encourage world leaders to make sure that as many children as possibly have access to education.
 
Mike Penning said:
“The children are clearly passionate about getting more children into education across the world. We are fortunate in this country to have full access to education – but I am only too aware that this is not the case the world over. 
 
“I am delighted that the children of Boxmoor School have taken an interest in this issue. What a great campaign for them to get involved in! We are now making arrangements for the letters to be given to the Prime Minister.”
