Some of you might know that last week some of our High School Students set off with their teachers to Tanzania to work on community building projects as part of the Nord Anglia Expeditions Programme. To assist with fundraising we had a group of Year 10 students visit Foundation Stage and set up a range of engaging and informative activities about Africa. Imani from Y10 gives you more details below. A huge thank you to the students for their hard work, and to teachers and parents for their generous support.
Year 10’s Storytelling for Tanzania
On Tuesday the 14th of January, a few children from Year 10 made their way to Primary School to perform an African story “Jambo Jamutai” to Foundation Stage in order to raise money for the people in Arusha, Tanzania.
“Jambo Jamutai” is a story about a young girl from Tanzania who helps different animals on her journey back home from the market. With this story we tried to show the children that if we do good, good will always come our way. Our aim was to help the children understand how they too can make a difference and demonstrate how their contribution to this event will help many others in a faraway country.
It was a great experience working with younger kids, we had to push ourselves to the limit, trying to make the story entertaining for them.
The year Tens and Twelves are travelling to Tanzania this week to work together with an NGO. All proceeds raised at the FS “Storytelling for Tanzania” will go to help the local community we are going to be working with, in Arusha. We raised a total of 10,105 baht!
