International Week

In the first week back after half term we will be having an International Week.  As part of this week, children will be focusing on Africa and a partner school in a village called Rukungiri, in Uganda. 

For a number of years now, Mount Street Academy has sponsored up to four children to attend St Paul’s School in Rukungiri.  Without support from the CPA charity and our fundraising, these children would not be able to have an education.  Within our International Week, year groups will be having a ‘Rukungiri Day’ where we adopt a ‘no electricity’ approach and provide typical activities which children living in Rukungiri would undertake in their day so that our children can begin to compare similarities and differences in cultures and experiences of similar aged children in another part of the world.

In order to fundraise this year, we ask that children bring a minimum £1 donation to school for the sponsorship of the four children who attend St Paul’s.  You are more  than welcome to send more than £1 if you so wish.  Many thanks.
