Our students on thier trip to Tanzania last year 

Last year 7 of our students were selected to go on this once in a lifetime trip, along with over 100 students from other Nord Anglia Education schools around the world. Now this year, the Year 9 cohort will have the same opportunity.  

Next March, Year 9 students from BISS Puxi, accompanied by Miss Rudd and Mr Hill, will travel to Arusha in Northern Tanzania where they will take part in local community projects and explore the Tanzanian environment and culture.  

Students will get to know children from the local community through working with the Huruma Orphanage and will also have the opportunity to contribute to the Maua Primary School by teaching some English lessons. They will take part in a safari exploring the stunning savannah landscape and wildlife, as well as learning about the history of the slave trade and how the legacy of colonial rule continues to effect development in Africa.

This fantastic opportunity will provide a very real life experience for our students equipping them with essential skills, experiences and dispositions that will be greatly advantageous in future work and higher education. They will build confidence, independence, leadership skills, work as part of a team, manage their own time and develop resilience, persistence and resourcefulness.

So far 21 students have signed up for the trip but there are still a few spaces for Year 9 students who would like to come. Please see Miss Rudd or Mr Hill as soon as possible if that is you. Events will be beginning soon to help students fundraise the ¥3,000 each that will go towards supporting development projects in Tanzania and the group welcome any help with the fundraising efforts or ideas.
