Our delegates were joined by more than 100 students from other Nord Anglia Education Schools across the world.
During the year, our students have organised a variety of fundraising activities, to contribute to the support of the local community in Tanzania, allowing them to collaborate with others in order to make a difference. Our students raised 2000 EUR to contribute to the total amount raised across the schools, the figure of which is still being calculated, as funds are still coming in.
Our students also took this opportunity to get involved in a variety of activities, both in the local Tanzanian community and in the Global Classroom base camp. The students spent two days teaching at the Maua School and renovating the Hurumo Orphanage. They also had a choice to go on either a three-day expedition to the island of Zanzibar and a safari to the Ngorongo Crater. During Africa Day, they immersed themselves in broader issues such as the local environment and the history of slavery where relevant and celebrated their diverse cultures with an International Day before heading back to Budapest.
Opportunities like these enhance our students' educational experience at school and ensure that all of our students understand the global environment in which they will be living and working.
Look out for the video which our students have created duing their trip - it is coming soon!
