Education Minister praises schools during visit to town
EDUCATION Minister Nick Gibb has praised two Southport Schools after being taken on a tour of them by the town’s MP Damien Moore.
During his visit, the minister was shown how children at Kew Woods Primary School on Ovington Drive are using a green screen to create their own news channel.
At Greenbank High School on Hastings Road, both he and Damien spoke with teachers and pupils and held a roundtable discussion on issues like more mental health support for students.
The two schools are considering combining into one. After his visit, Mr Gibb praised them for their ‘very high academic standards.’
Damien Moore added: “I invited the minister to Southport because I wanted to show him some of our great schools. Kew and Greenbank are creating amazing opportunities for our town’s children.”
