Lunch at the Lords Feb03
Khanbhai, MEP for Eastern region, took two Norfolk teachers for lunch at
the House of Lords yesterday. The lunch for two, offered by Mr Khanbhai,
was bought in an "Auction of Promises" by local teacher, Jane
Maguire, as part of a North Walsham High School Fundraiser last year.
Maguire, a teacher of German and French for 15 years, is a "Gifted
and Talented Co-ordinator" in
charge of a programme for North Walsham High's most able students. She is
also the school's Publicity Officer and advises the Student Council. Ms
Maguire was accompanied by Mr. Chris Tooth, Assistant Head of North
auction raised £2000 in total which will go to help the school achieve
specialist school status in the area of performing arts. The House of
Lords lunch, which raised £60, provided the opportunity for Mr Khanbhai
and the two members of North Walsham School's staff to discuss education
policies, the promotion of modern languages in British schools and
increasing the involvement of pupils in European politics.
