Students and a teacher from Frances Olive Anderson primary school in Gainsborough will be playing an important part in a worldwide Syria pledging conference.

They will spend a day at the conference talking about their experience of being paired with a school in Beirut as a part of Connecting Classrooms programme funded by the UK government.

This involves the children having regular catch ups with their friends in Beirut over Skype, and the teachers swapping lesson plans and tips with their Lebanese counterparts.

VIPs and Heads of State from more than 70 countries to attend the conference and the school students will have a chance to chat to many of them at the conference on Thursday, February 4.
