Pupils on our Tanzania expedition have had a busy few days so far as they begin construction work at Sakila Secondary School, meet local school children and see the difference previous efforts by Lincoln Minster pupils has made.
Upon arrival, the group set up their tents (pictured) on the school grounds of Sakila Secondary School where they will be helping with a construction project.
When they first arrived they were greeted by the students of the school with a fantastic, and touching, dance and singing performance (pictured). There were some speeches from the Headmaster and local students welcoming the group and thanking them for their help and support in improving the school, and therefore lives of the local children.
The group were then given a tour by senior teachers and invited into the Headmaster's office where he explained that £1100 of the money raised by Lincoln Minster students had been spent purchasing the materials for the project.
The construction project involves constructing a perimeter fence and main gate for the school. The Headteacher explained how important this is for the security of the school and children who study here.
