Karuri School Project, Kenya

On 6th March 2018 we were delighted to receive a visit from Wangari Cecilia and John Sleet of the Karuri School Project.  The Karuri School Project was the result of Wangari's ambition to bring education to the children of a remote area of Kenya.

Our school as well as others in Northamptonshire has been fundraising and supporting the Project.  We were pleased that in her very busy few weeks in the UK, that Wangari was able to spend some time with us.  We were very grateful that Wangari was our speaker in a whole school assembly, and afterwards the Year 6 pupils had a question and answer session with her.  Since that visit the latest Karuri Project newsletter has been published and a copy is available below.

It was an especially interesting visit for our Year 6 who had completed a project on the school last year, writing to children there as pen pals and creating scale models of the school in their maths classes.  We hope that we can continue to strengthen our relationship with the Sacred Heart Catholic School and find ways to support the next steps of this amazing project.
