Good News From David

I am pleased to report that the Ministry of Education in Sierra Leone has agreed in principle to recognise the school.
This approval has been achieved after several years of effort, a clear demonstration of improving standards and provision of facilities second to none.
Tremendous thanks to all of you for your support and commitment.
Staff have now submitted their certificates to the Ministry and will be placed on the national pay-scales and paid directly by the government, a great saving for the charity, freeing monies for other crucial developments at the school. The school will remain independent and free to pupils, yet receive this additional financial and some educational support.
We will be in Sierra Leone soon to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the school. Newsletter in early November on our return.
More information will gradually become available and I will keep you informed.
Much has been achieved and the Trustees look forward to your continuing support in providing life chances for our disadvantaged young people, many of whom are orphans.

Thank you again.

David

Spoon Collection

Ramsey Junior school children collected spoons to be sent out to Sierra Leone.  All our children will have a spoon rather than eating with their hands.  Spoons currently on the ocean and will be distributed in October.

The photograph shows David Wallwork accepting the spoons from the school children.

2018 AGM Presentation

David proposed a vote of thanks, and presented flowers to Maureen McKenna who has decided to stand down as a charity Trustee after nine years service. In fact one of the original three Trustees.

Maureen has visited the school on several occasions and was able to recall some very amusing anecdotes about her time in Sierra Leone.

Many thanks from everyone and best wishes to Maureen.
