A Week to Celebrate Africa

Students at Wimbledon High School set aside a week in November to Celebrate Africa. The week highlighted the plight of children and young people and that of girls and women. Students wrote poetry, did art pieces and displayed these for parents and teachers to view.

Pictures of African scenes, families and every day life were also donated by a very generous photographer for display in the school's auditorium.

As part of the school's 'making a difference policy', Ladi and her team were invited to speak to the students about the difficulties of growing up as a girl in rural Africa. Parents  and pupils donated generously to support the education of girls in Africa. The school has also committed to making this an annual event as part of the school's anniversary celebration.

What a fantastic opportunity for the girls whose lives will be transformed by the generosity of this school!
