On 10th February students from Year 12, plus staff members, Ms Uhure and Ms Tóth, will be embarking on an expedition to Tanzania.
In preparation for the expedition, we have run several fundraisers to raise money for the work that will take place when we get there. At the Christmas Fair in December, we sold baked goods and ran a henna stall, where teachers and students could have the opportunity to get a traditional henna design along with some snacks. Not only that, but we also sold baked goods during lunchtimes for students and staff, while simultaneously helping to sell tickets for the BISB production of The Crucible. We have more fundraisers planned for the future, one being the annual grand fundraiser, where teachers will be involved too!
It is a weeklong expedition, where we will be in groups mixed with students from other Nord Anglia schools. There’ll be a range of activities, such as construction, taking part in a safari, and camping. The safari part of the trip is an amazing opportunity to see the beauty of nature and see life in its natural habitat. There is also a night where we camp at Dolly Bush Estate, where students will be in charge of preparing food for the group.
We are most excited to meet new people and see how the community runs in the area of Tanzania we are visiting. All these activities will also improve collaborative skills, along with building up skills of working with people from a vast variety of cultures. This will be a great chance to step out of our comfort zone and do things that we wouldn’t normally do. This is exciting and a once in a lifetime opportunity for all taking part on the trip.
