PUPILS from Westleigh High School have received a letter of thanks from the Prime Minister.
They made ‘ideal teacher cut-outs’ to highlight the inspirational work of teachers around the world as part of a Send my Friend to School: Every Child needs a Teacher campaign.
The school then sent the cut-outs and a letter explaining the work to Leigh MP Andy Burnham who passed it on to David Cameron.
The letter read: “Thank you for sending me your colourful paper teachers. I am very impressed by the concern that you have shown for the education of children in poor countries.”
Head teacher John Banks said: “I am very proud of our students and their willingness to participate in projects to help other students within a global community.
“The lack of education for primary school children is a serious issue and by highlighting this, it may inspire some of our students to consider teaching as a career in the future.”
