Yesterday Elyssia came home from school very excited about a very big opportunity she has with school. In July 2015 her school are going to take some of the pupils that are currently in year 9 to a once in a life time trip to Uganda.
The trip is for 10 days to help out in a village the local schools currently sponsor including the educational, medical, agricultural aspects of the village. This trip will involve the pupils becoming involved in the development projects of the village. They will be able to work on projects such as building a 2 storey building for a destitute family as well as visiting homes of local people. Take a morning assembly at the village school.
I think this will be such a great opportunity for all the pupils but especially Elyssia as she sees for herself how other people live. How she can help others as well as learning about different cultures.
This is going to be a very life changing trip. It’s such a big opportunity.
