A group of 15 students from year 10 and 11 have signed up for the Mexico 2017 visit during which time they will live with Mexican families, go on cultural and educational excursions to Mayan ruins and flamingo reserves and teach English at a primary school.
The trip is funded by way of a number of fundraising events that will happen over the coming months including washing teachers cars, ‘rowing the English Channel’ and cake sales at Parents Evenings. We look forward to keeping you up to date with our progress.
It would be amazing if you could help us support this worthy international cause so please contact Emma Kirby
