A group of 16 senior pupils will depart for Ekwendeni on 12th June and, as part of our efforts to improve education in the area, we are looking for your support. We hope to be able to take with us pencil cases for all of the local children which we will give to the teachers at Ekwendeni Primary School to distribute to their pupils. This year we are asking that you put a few pounds in your pencil case. We will then use this money to buy stationery for the school when we are in Malawi. This will help the children with their learning and support the local economy. Alternatively, you may wish to fill your pencil cases with items such as pencils, rulers, erasers, sharpeners, coloured pencils and crayons. The pencil cases can be handed to your child’s English teacher or placed in the deposit bins in The Street area of the school. These small donations make a big difference to the lives of the children in Ekwendeni. Please support us with this project if you can.
