Year 12 pupils travelled to Kenya to work at Olpalagilagi Primary School

A group of 10 lucky Year 12 pupils and two members of staff travelled at the start of half term to spend two weeks on the southern edge of the Maasai Mara. They were hosted in superb style by the Cottar’s 1920’s camp. The key focus of the trip was to work at Olpalagilagi Primary School, where each of the Gresham’s pupils taught up to 80 children at a time with few resources to hand. In addition to this, activities included litter picking, erosion control work, learning from the local community about Maasai culture, and of course the odd safari to look for the Big Five took place.
