An Update From Tanzania

Seven students from BISS Puxi have been in Tanzania for a week now. Their time has been split between serving the local community by working at a school both renovating it and teaching the children there, and cultural excursions which have included a trip to Zanzibar and a safari.

Some pictures of the work the students have been doing at the Maua School and from their amazing safari.

The students have been reflecting on their experiences throughout their time in Tanzania on the TanzaniaLIVE section of the Global Classroom.

This is available for you all to follow throughout the trip by following this link and using the log in details below:

Here is just a taster of some of what they’ve been experiencing and their reflections on it.

Katie White, Year 12

"Today we had our first day at Maua School. The first thing that struck me (even before we got off of the bus) was the enthusiasm and excitement the children showed. Before the bus stopped – they ran over and had the biggest smiles I had ever seen! I really felt I was having a positive effect on someone else. The thing that struck me the most was how much the children appreciated the stickers we gave them when we were teaching. Stickers which to us are random, little things that are lying around at the bottom of the draw. One little girl spent a lot of time trying to choose between two stickers. When I told her she could have both, she didn’t believe me for a while. This really made me think about what I do and don’t consider to be pointles trinkets. The main thing I am going to take away with me from this day came later – when we were painting. The children were so keen to help. Not in a ‘we want to muck around way’, but they really wanted to make their school better. Their loyalty to their school was really touching. I can’t pin point it, but it made me feel a fierce loyalty to the children."

Chloe Tytherleigh, Year 12

"Today we went to Ngorongoro Crater. It was an amazing sight and was very beautiful. It took an hour to drive down to the centre of the crater, the ride was quite bumpy but we took lots of scenic pictures. We saw zebras, elephants, baboons. As well as seeing lots of different species of birds, we saw antelopes, water buffalos and some hyenas. We ate lunch at a lake which had some hippos swimming in it. We then continued exploring the crater, we were going to give up seeing a lion but then we saw four brothers! They are such majestic animals and seeing them made my day!"
