Park School for Girls

Pupils at the Park School for Girls made lots of cardboard teacher figures to tell their MP about the global teacher shortage.

Did you know that 1.7 million extra teachers are needed for every child in the world to have an education?  Some children say that it is boring to go to school but we don’t think so. We think that when you’re older, you won’t be able to get a very good job, or understand what to do, or succeed in your work if you don’t go to school. You should be grateful if you can go to school because some children can’t afford the fees, the uniform or the books.

We are making teachers from cardboard to encourage our government to help other schools around the world find and train more teachers. Do you have a teacher? We should all be grateful that we have a teacher and that we have enough money to go to school.
