YOUNGSTERS from Tudor Grange School welcomed International Development Minister Mike Foster when he visited with a scheme which aims to get the 72 million children worldwide who are not receiving any education, into school.

The Dingle Lane school’s Year 9 football team joined the initiative, 1GOAL, which also boasts support from football superstars Thierry Henry, Rio Ferdinand, and Michael Essien.

Students from the school’s eco group also gave a presentation on their efforts and held a question and answer session with the minister.

Mr Foster said: “Education offers the best route out of poverty for those living in the world’s poorest countries, yet still 72 million children will wake up without a school to go to. That’s why I’m delighted that Solihull students have chosen to get behind the 1GOAL campaign, helping to give children across the world a brighter future.”

Pat Middleton, a teacher at Tudor Grange School, said “The students really enjoyed themselves, especially the Year 9 football team.” l 1GOAL, a brainchild of Gordon Brown, was launched by the Prime Minister in October last year.
