In March, 11 students from Year 9 and Year 10 and two members of staff will travel to rural Ghana for a volunteering experience of a lifetime. The students will spend two weeks mostly living in a rural community in the east of the country.

During their stay, they will work at Shalom School making bricks and building classrooms as well as helping as teaching assistants. The school has around 300 pupils aged between three and 16 but lacks many resources.

Each Embley student has raised £2,000 for the trip through a variety of fundraising initiatives over the last 18 months.

Our students will have a generous luggage allowance and they are looking for resource donations from the following list to take with them to give to Shalom School. Please leave donations in Miss McLean’s room (EN1) before 22 March:  

Thank you.
