Cruncharama and the Chancellor

Chancellor Alastair Darling talking to pupils at Millais School, Horsham

In the build up to the G20 London summit, the Chancellor Alistair Darling hosted a meeting of finance ministers from the G20 countries at Horsham in Sussex.

At the start of the weekend, the Chancellor visited the local comprehensive, Millais School where pupils showed Mr Darling the Cruncharama.

A group of Year 11 students showed the Chancellor the comments they were posting on the Cruncharama site.  

Pupils told Mr Darling that they had been discussing these questions and ideas for the G20 with students from their partner school in Canada – the Glenforest Secondary School in Mississauga, Ontario.  Glenforest are also taking part in the Cruncharama. 

“It’s very interesting to hear about the views of your colleagues in Canada," said Mr Darling, who was shown video footage of the Canadian students.  "I'll tell Mr Flaherty about it when I see him later today."

How did they do that?

Millais School has international partners in North America, Australia, Asia and Europe and have been awarded the International School Award.
