Trip of a Lifetime

Trip of a Lifetime

Nearly 40 of our Year 8 pupils visited the Goedgedacht Trust, as part of a cultural and sports tour to South Africa during the summer. The pupils joined many pupils for a range of activities, football and netball matches, as well as a visit to the school for the younger pupils.   Through a number of fundraising activitites including, a Big Camp Out, "Great Oratory Preparatory Bake Off", Mothers Day plants, a silent auction and other sports fundraising efforts involving parents, they raised an amazing R310 000 (equiv to nearly £17000) for the Trust! We’ve received a letter of thanks and understand that the money will be used to expand the Path Onto Prosperity (POP) Youth Programme into some very remote and poor rural communities. This is a fantastic effort from the pupils and those parents who were involved. Many thanks to the staff who coordinated the trip too.
