Year 8 Letters to Stephen Williams MP

Year 8 students have been studying the novel 'Trash' by Andy Mulligan. The plot focuses on 3 children who work on a dumpsite in the Philippines.

The novel inspired the students to write to their local MP, Stephen Williams, describing these events and what we could do to help the poorest people in developing countries. 

In his reply, Stephen Williams was very complementary about the students' writing, saying that they "wrote eloquently". As a result of their letters, he is also going to write to the British Foreign Secretary and the Filipino Ambassador about this matter. 

Well done Year 8.
