Congratulations to the S5 Malawi group who were recently rewarded for their hard work and effort whilst fundraising over the last year for their Malawi project. The 30 pupils in the Malawi group were successfully nominated for a prestigious Diana Award in the category of Champion Fundraiser. The £15,000 raised will be used to fund the renovation of three classrooms at Ekwendeni Primary School as well as building a nursery in Encongolweni. The pupils leave for Malawi today for two weeks and we wish them a safe journey and a productive trip.
The Diana Award recognises young people who have made a positive difference in their schools and communities. More information on the Diana award can be found at http://diana-award.org.uk/ Congratulations to all 30 pupils in the Malawi group who have received this prestigious award.
