SCHOOL pupils from St Joseph’s Primary School took part in a charity walk the campaign for safe and quality education for children across the globe.

As part of the month-long Bay to Hay relay walk that starts in Cardiff Bay and ends at the Hay Festival in Hay on Wye, young campaigners from St Joseph’s walked from the Senedd to St Cadoc’s Primary School in Cardiff.

Pupils at 11 schools across Wales who are taking part in the Bay to Hay relay will also be writing a personal letter to their local MP calling for a safe and quality education for all.

These letters are slotted into a baton which will be passed from school to school, stopping briefly at the Senedd for a parliamentary reception today (Thursday) before its journey culminates at the Hay Festival on May 24.

The Bay to Hay project is organised by Gareth Rein, head teacher at St Joseph’s Roman Catholic primary school in Penarth and Rajvi Glasbrook Griffiths, the assistant headteacher of Glan Usk Primary School in Newport.

Mr Rein said: “It’s fantastic to see so many young people from South East Wales and Herefordshire raise their voices and call for a safe education for all.

“The children really enjoyed it and were very enthusiastic.”
