Our Junior Year students will be competing in a Junior Triathlon on 10 June.
Boys will be competing in teams of three to run 1.8km; swim 150m; or cycle 3km. Completing one leg each, they are raising funds for the Trinity Malawi Project.
The Trinity Malawi Project has forged a close friendship with the community in Malawi since 2015 and has been part of a partnership with Chipwepwete School. Every £12 raised is enough to sponsor a child at Chipwepwete for a free school lunch for a whole year. This is our longstanding commitment to the school which we honour every year.
On top of this, Junior classes which raise more funds can contribute towards our other projects. For instance, there are only two on-site houses for teachers at the school, and most teaching staff take about two hours to walk to school every day. As a result, lessons often don’t start on time, which reduces the learning opportunities for the pupils and impacts their ability to pass the exams for secondary education. Staff retention is also difficult due to the long commute. We are working with Hope4Malawi to address this problem and we hope to raise enough funds to provide bicycles for teachers to travel to school more easily. This video has been created by Hope4Malawi to explain the situation.
A lack of toilet facilities in rural Malawi, remains an issue too, and £500 could pay for a block of two new toilets.

“We are extremely grateful for any sponsorship for the boys to enable us to raise as much money as we can to support our partners, Hope4Malawi and Chipwepwete School. We thank you for your generosity; please help us smash our target!”
Mrs Carey, Deputy Head of Lower and Middle Schools
