Pupils Join Partnerships with Schools in Kenya

For the fifteenth year, Ian Clark led a group of pupils and staff to Kenya, spending five days around the town of Gilgil, north-west of Nairobi, working at partnership schools and orphanages in the area.

The group then spent three nights in the Masai Mara, based at Governor’s Camp, with the aim of linking with some local schools on a digital project to be coordinated by Head of Digital Strategy, Dai Barnes.

Finally, back in Nairobi, the pupils visited the innovative sports project at Sadili Oval, situated on the edge of the Kibera slums, which aims to empower children through sport.

Naomi Jones, Director of the Stahl Theatre in Oundle, also joined the trip to look at a drama partnership with Ngecho School in Gilgil and Liz Dillarstone, Head of Community Action, furthered already strong links with Gilgil Special School.
