Volunteer Trip to India
In the first 2 weeks of July, 2018, twenty-five students from The English School (from Years 4-6) together with some English School parents and teachers, will be embarking on an exciting journey to Kerala, Southern India, on a two week volunteer mission.
They will be staying in a Guest House in Mitraniketan, a non- profit organisation, whose main goal it is to help support rural communities break the cycle of poverty.
They will be involved in a range of volunteer work opportunities at the Mitraniketan School and Orphanage. Most will be working as Teacher Assistants, helping to teach basic English and grammar, nursery games, dance, music, Art (Theatre/ Sculpture/ Painting) and sports. Others will engage in designing newsletters and writing Articles for Fund Raising and others will have the option of assisting in agricultural projects or in the bakery.
The Principal of Mitraniketan has informed us that the children are in great need of sports equipment. Therefore we would like to appeal to the English School community to donate the following items so that we can take with us to India in July : tennis rackets, volleyballs, basketballs, tennis balls, shuttlecocks, badminton rackets, and nets. All should be in reasonably good condition. Items can be dropped off at Reception or in the Main Entrance during office hours from now until the end of March.
We would like to thank you in advance for your support and generous donations!!
