On Wednesday 22nd May, Zac Goldsmith MP visited the Happy Learners group to meet with home educated children based at the Thames Mariners site in Ham.
The Happy Learners is a group of children who meet to learn in a social environment with other home-educated children. The purpose of the organisation is to create a fun and nurturing learning environment for the pupils.
During Zac’s visit he was asked a wide range of questions, but with a focus on the environment and sustainability.
Commenting, Zac said; “I thoroughly enjoyed meeting the children and was impressed by the range of questions they put to me. They clearly care a great deal about the natural world and I suspect some of them will grow up to be conservationists. I certainly hope so”
