MP backs schools’ petition bid
CLWYD West MP, David Jones, has welcomed a delegation from Ysgol Pen y Bryn, Colwyn Bay, to Westminster.
The group, of two teachers and four pupils, was given a tour of the Palace of Westminster, and then taken to Downing Street by David Jones in order to deliver a petition to the Prime Minister.
The teachers and pupils, representing the school, travelled to Westminster to support the ‘Send my Friend to School’ campaign, which strives to ensure every child in the world can attend school and receive a good education.
David Jones said: “I was delighted to be able to welcome teachers and pupils from Ysgol Pen y Bryn to Westminster, and to accompany them to Downing Street to deliver their ‘Send my Friend to School’ petition.
“I am proud the British Government’s record on supporting the provision of education in the world’s poorer countries and regions is so strong.
“I believe that the Send my Friend to School campaign is a worthy one, and I commend the teachers and pupils at Ysgol Pen y Bryn for their endeavours.”
