Pupil’s Send My Friend to School campaign supported by local MP

Stephen Gethins’ constituency office showcase for Castlehill PS designs

The work of over 200 Cupar schoolchildren designed to support the world-wide Send My Friend to School campaign, is being displayed in the North East Fife constituency office of Stephen Gethins MP.

The letters, sent in by pupils at Castlehill Primary School shortly before the summer break, call on the Prime Minister Theresa May to ensure she does all she can to promote children’s right to education across the globe.

Mr Gethins, who took the letters to the Prime Minister’s private office, also wrote to her to ask what she would be doing to support the campaign.

He said: “I am very grateful to the pupils and staff at Castlehill for getting in touch about this very important campaign. It is so important that every child has access to education and it’s great that the pupils understand this and want to do what they can to support other children across the globe. I have written to the Prime Minister to raise this with her.

Mr Gethins added: “It is obvious the children have worked very hard on their letters and designs and it is fantastic to show them in the office. I hope the children, their families and friends will pop in to see the display.”
