On Safari – Botswana Fundraising

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Important Announcements

Well done everyone. Final Total is £1218.78! Full list of Raffle Prize Winners HERE.

Our 2016 Exchange with Palapye Senior Secondary School in Botswana takes place in late June and early July this year. Pupils going on the trip fund themselves. However we also fundraise to be able to support various projects in Botswana when we are there, and to be able to support the reciprocal visits of students and staff from Botswana when they visit Scotland.

Today we’ve had a dress down day for Botswana. The theme this year is “On Safari”. Along with this we have had a bake sale and raffle too.

Later in April we will also be fundraising at Tesco-Extra Inverness in order to support our work with the local hospital in Palapye, the orphanage there, and a primary school in Kasane near the Victoria Falls. It’s been a huge team effort with many staff and pupils involved in this Global Exchange project, past, present and future, helping out.

Thank you to everyone participating and contributing.
