Welcome to the Spring Term, 2018!
January 9 2018
Welcome back to all our pupils and staff who have been away over the Christmas holidays. We hope you had a wonderful break!
Our new term has begun in earnest, and we are already getting back in to the swing of things with our regular Tasty Tuesday events!
We run these every week, and the pupils love it! It’s a chance to contribute towards our Kenya fund while enjoying the treat of a delicious bacon roll!
Tasty Tuesdays are one of the fundraising initiatives we run throughout the year, and we’re able to directly support our chosen projects with nothing lost to any administrator or intermediary.
Each year, a team of pupils and staff heads out to Nairobi to take part in a two-week summer holiday activities programme for the 600 primary school pupils of the Mashimoni Squatters Primary School.
The programme is funded by the generous donations of the Strathallan community and all of the participants who actually go to Kenya cover their own individual costs. Our ‘summer school’ guarantees that the Mashimoni children are seen and fed daily during a time that they would normally be on holiday.
We have also sponsored 40 pupils at Mashimoni Squatters Primary School for all their schooling (including uniform and food) for the entire academic year. Our immediate target is to keep these children in school. Our next objective is to help provide much needed photovoltaic power.
