Nusrat Ghani, MP for Wealden, was pleased to welcome the COP26 President, The Rt Hon Alok Sharma MP to Wealden last week, to visit Hailsham Community College.
Ahead of the annual Hailsham Community College Careers Fair in March, of which Nusrat has been a champion every year, the COP26 President visited the school to talk to Sixth Form students about his responsibilities, UK’s leading role in keeping climate at the top of the international agenda and about delivering greener future and greener jobs.
It was a fantastic opportunity for the students and the class engaged the President in insightful questions about not only the goals of the COP26 Climate Conference, tackling global warming, and holding other countries to account and act upon their promises, but also about Parliamentary procedures and Ministerial responsibilities.
Nusrat Ghani said: “Hailsham Community College is a fantastic school and every year I am proud to be championing their careers fair, which exhibits local work opportunities and inspires the future career choices of our students. It was an absolute pleasure to welcome the COP26 President to the school and give the students a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to discuss Britain’s leading work on tackling climate change and inspire them to consider careers in delivering these goals. The questions from the floor were a great testament to the fantastic education they are receiving at Hailsham Community College, and it was great to see the students’ passion for the environment and greener future.”
