The challenges continue for our sixth formers
School may be out for the summer, but for our sixth formers life as part of the Sackville community continues. First up, congatulations to Sky Bollom, who has ‘braved the shave‘ in support of McMillan Cancer Support. As you can see, there was a lot to shave, and the £150 raised was well-earned!
On Sunday 29th July, our year 12 world challengers departed for four weeks in Nepal. After two years of fundraising for a trip to Central America, the trip was rescheduled to Nepal due to the current political situation in Nicaragua.
Once in Nepal, after a familiarisation phase, the team will work in a school in the Kathmandu Valley. Upon completion of the project phase, the students head west to Pokhara to undertake a trek lasting more than a week in the Annapurna region (where the worst of the monsoon can be avoided).
This group are the second from Sackville to visit Nepal this year, and we know that they are in for a life-changing experience in this amazing country. More updates to follow if possible!
