Preparations for our fourth Connecting Classrooms Global Exchange trip to Botswana are now underway. Over thirty students and five staff will be heading to Botswana at the end of June to visit our partner school, Lotsane Senior Secondary School, in Palapye in Central Botswana.
While there, students and staff will spend three days working in school as part of our cultural exchange. We will also be visiting the local Maternity Hospital with donations of knitting and other goods that are much needed and we will be taking over. We will visit, work and support an AIDS orphanage in Palapye and later will also visit a primary school in Kasane in the north of Botswana. Our itinerary is now final.
Today students and staff received their own “allowance” of knitting and other donations that we are bringing over. Students must share these and pack them into their own limited luggage allowance to take. Students also received their House T shirts that will be their school dress code in Lotsane Senior Secondary. Everyone is now really excited to be in the final stages of preparation after two years of planning.
