PUPILS concerned about the climate crisis discussed their work with a high-profile visitor.

Victoria Prentis visited Bloxham School near Banbury earlier this month, to hear from the school's Young Enterprise team, The Climate Crew.

The Banbury MP learnt how the team have created a children's book that explores the theme of climate change, following the story of a sea turtle called Tucker.

She said: "I was thrilled to come to visit the Climate Crew.

"Having taken part in Young Enterprise myself, I know how valuable this project is to young people.

"The book the team have produces is fantastic and sends a really important message to children. We are really looking forward to helping their message reach Parliament."

Young Enterprise runs nationally and schools can put forward a team to take part in the competition, offering them experience in business management, organisation, problem-solving, communication and confidence.

One of the young entrepreneurs, Sophie Tredwell, said climate issues are 'extremely important' to the team.

Saj Hussain, a business studies teacher at the school, said: "The team have made all the decisions from day one, from deciding the company name and product, to selling their products at public trade fairs and managing their finance, marketing and operations as they progress.

"The programme provides students with real life experiences that enrich and develop learning from a wide range of subject areas."
