Dudley MP Ian Austin is returning to his old school to present prizes at an awards evening this Thursday.
Austin will be speaking at Castle High School’s awards evening at 6:30pm on Thursday 24th November.
The MP grew up in Dudley and went to Russells Hall Primary School followed by Castle High, at that time known as The Dudley School. He will speak to pupils, teachers and parents about the importance of setting high aspirations before certificates of achievement are awarded.
Austin has been campaigning to make education and skills the Black Country’s number one priority to attract new jobs and business to the area to replace those lost in traditional industries.
Ian Austin said:
“My education at Castle High set me up for life and got me where I am today.
“That’s why I always talk about making education and skills Dudley’s number one priority to attract new businesses and jobs to the town to replace the ones we lost in traditional industries.
“My message to students in the Black Country today is that we’re as good as anyone and with the right encouragement and support, if they make the most of their talents, and strive every day to be the best they can be, the sky the really is the limit.”
