Puppet power helps students communicate

A NATIONAL campaign raising awareness of the importance for young people to develop their communication skills was launched at the Barking Learning Centre last Thursday.

Pupils from Eastbrook, Hunters Hall Primary, Ripple Primary and Trinity Schools took part in an interactive puppet show to launch the Hello Campaign.

The campaign is run by The Communication Trust, a coalition of over 35 voluntary organisations with expertise in speech, language and communication.
