Yr 9 Young  Enterprise – Final Total !

sugar

Well done to Year 9 who have raised over £400 for Ghana this year as part of their ‘Young Enterprise’ module. Looking at the photos and listening to the accounts of those who have been a part of ‘Team Ghana’ has had a lasting effect on many of our students. As a result, they have worked very  hard to apply various business strategies  and  compete against opposing ‘companies’  to raise the most money as possible for this good cause. A big ‘Thank You’ also goes to all the friends and families who were persuaded to buy their cookies !

Ghana 1 - 07.07

On Saturday, the Team have visited the centre of Kumasi to learn more about Ghanaian history and culture, giving context to what they are experiencing.

They also learnt about the place of Christianity within Ghanaian heritage and saw the Cathedral Basilica of St Peter- dedicated to the Archbishop of Kumasi in 2004.

On Sunday, the Team visited St Michael’s parish for another typical joyful Ghanaian mass, filled with dancing, singing and praise.

They also had the opportunity to see the parish primary school which is in desperate need of additional classrooms to accommodate the children.  The efforts of Team Ghana will put a roof on this block and provide 4 extra classrooms.

Ghana 1 05.07

Today the Team left Samaritan Villa, Kumasi and moved to the John Paul II Formation centre, Obuasi, where they will spend the next four days. En route they visited St Luke’s Catholic school which is where their fundraising ideas have been focused- the school are in need of water and the funds raised will provide a bore-hole.

They were so delighted to see the visitors from the UK and we join with them in thanking everyone for all the support as it will now make such a big difference to their daily lives.

Our Sixth Formers spent time mixing with students and staff and were treated to fabulous performances from the school children.

Ghana 1 04.07

Today the Team visited two schools and Christ the Teacher training college where students study to become teachers. Our sixth formers could see at first-hand how the support from St Paul’s has made such a difference to the daily lives of the staff and students. They were able to spend time with classes and learn about the challenges that they continue to face.

The pictures show Holy Rosary school (which now has a mechanised bore hole and fresh water), Parkoso (which thankfully can benefit from a toilet block) and Christ the teacher training college. The classrooms at the bottom have been funded by our previous Team but as you can see there is still much to be done!

Today we visited Bishop Sarpong Primary & Middle School where we saw the outcome of all the hard work done by the Team Ghana 2016 group.

It was so humbling to receive the gratitude of the young people who described how they use the borehole St Paul’s funded to fill a bucket in just 2 minutes: previously this involved a 50 minute round trip on foot.

We then moved on to visit Ofinsu School and St Jerome’s Secondary School.
