Extra Curricular Activities
We have a well-established bi-annual visit to Malosa Secondary School in Malawi. This year 16 students are going, they will spend time working closely with pupils at Malosa school as well as visiting villages in the area, the local hospital, and a local Primary School. The visit will be rounded off with a Safari at Liwonde National Park. It is a unique experience where students exchange experiences with pupils in one of the poorest (in financial terms) countries in Africa but discover the richness of their culture.
News of other extra curricular trips and activities :
Malawi 2017 was an amazing trip - students interacted with pupils at Malosa Secondary school , visited local villages and worked with the Macobo volunteers to make a new floor for a very sick young woman. New desks were purchased to furnish classrooms at Malosa so students who had been working while sat on the floor, could study in comfort. The trip was rounded off with close encounters with Hippo and Elephants and beautiful sunsets over the Shire river. Congratulations to all those who went and thank you to all staff, parents and students who supported the trip by donating clothing, stationary, footballs and kit, medical equipment and so much more. Everything was given to people who really needed it and they send their warm appreciation.
