It was great to welcome back Sabrina Stocker who came in to talk to Year 10, Year 11 and Year 12 students. She shared some stories about her time in the The Apprentice and thoughts on Alan Sugar and his team.
Sabrina told students about her Tennis Events Business, her TV work and challenges along the way. Her over-riding message was one of taking opportunities and making things happen for yourself. She answered wide ranging questions - from how to apply for The Apprentice, was Alan Sugar really as mean as he seems? How did Sabrina set up her own business, how was she such a confident public speaker?
Malawi 2019 was an amazing trip - students interacted with pupils at Malosa Secondary school and visited local villages. 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.

The new desk/chair combinations purchased for one of the classrooms go on the minibus roof! rather a challenge when we met low power lines!
