Choose textbooks, not Facebook


APP’s leader, Prem Goyal, was invited to share an inspirational speech with pupils at St Mary Magdalene Primary School in Peckham on Friday 5th June.

Prem shared his journey from India to the UK, via America, and talked about the many obstacles he had to overcome. Prem said to choose textbooks, not Facebook. He also stressed the importance of following the guidance of parents and teachers, getting homework done on time and learning life skills from parents and siblings.

It was a highly interactive discussion, lasting one and a half hours, bursting with many excellent questions.
