What a result – One of our older Buttercup Babes was in the Yorkshire Evening Post on Monday 31st March. She was part of Sharp Lane Primary School that are demanding Pop Stars like Miley, Lady Gaga and the rest of the raunchy stars to clean up their act.

The youngsters want the stars to ditch the current trend to create provocative videos and become inspirational role models.

The school have handed out leaflets to parents to encourage them to be careful about what the children watch on television.

They have even written a song called “That’s what makes a Role Model” to the tune of One Direction’s “What makes you beautiful”.

The children themselves agreed that the videos that these stars create make them feel uncomfortable and they are wanting things to change. “Just because you are showing your body doesn’t mean you are popular and successful. If your talented then that should be enough and this is what they should be aspiring to”

Another class at Sharp Lane Primary in Middleton are raising money for Macmillan. The schools two campaigns are part of the nationwide Go-Givers project.

Well Done to all the School at Sharp Lane and our older Buttercup Babe for making a stand and to try and change how the media promote pop artists.

The school children are passionate about the projects and helped them feel empowered to make a difference when they get together whilst they are making very good use of the educational material that they are studying.

What a fantastic approach for the school to have – listening to the pupils and making lessons interesting something that will keep all the children interested in learning.
