I like to read news like this one: educate children should be a priority, unfortunately it’s not always so. Well done, those children will be good citizens

    Thanks for this!
    I’m chuffed too 🙂
    The children are the future right? So they HAVE to know, so that they can make their ‘home’ a better place. By ‘home’ I mean heir residence, are AND beyond. Everything has a knock on effect on everything else in the end.
