Worried pupils at Khalsa Primary School visited their MP Tan Dhesi on Friday to share their anxieties about the planet.

The head boy and girl with their deputies from the school in Wexham Road, Slough visited Mr Dhesi's offices to lobby him on climate change and plastic pollution.

The four children, who are currently in year 5 at KPS, brought with them an envelope containing 62 letters; one for each of the children in their class. Every year 5 pupil had conducted research on climate change and plastic pollution and written a letter to Mr Dhesi beseeching him to take action. Some children had even prepared and recoded a rap which Mr Dhesi and his office were looking forward to listening to.

The four young visitors delivered a speech on plastic pollution to Mr Dhesi and shared many facts which they had learnt. They suggested a campaign to make Slough single use plastic free.

Mr Dhesi explained to them some of the work that he was involved with in parliament to legislate against plastics and climate change. He also promised to table a question in parliament in response to the children’s letters and their lobbying efforts.

Year 5 teacher Sebastian Sussman went with the children.

He said: "Since the primary children at KPS don’t have a right to vote we believe it is important for them to enfranchise themselves in other ways. The children have proved that they have a voice and Mr Dhesi has shown that he is ready to listen."
