Junior Year students recently competed in a Junior Triathlon, taking part in teams of three to run 1.8km; swim 150m; or cycle 3km around the school site in order to raise funds for the Trinity Malawi Project. Every J Bug participated, challenging themselves with the intention of raising money for a good cause, and it was great to welcome parents in to support and cheer on the boys.
We have been thrilled with the generous donations so far, having raised £559 to date. 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, funds 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. We are working with Hope4Malawi to address this problem and we hope to raise enough funds to provide on-site accommodation for teachers. More information and the link to donate can be found here.
Ms Justin said: “The Junior Year triathlon is always an exciting event and something the boys should feel very proud of. Not only did they help raise money that is going to help fund much needed projects for Chipwepwete school, but they really pushed themselves. Thank you so much to those who have contributed so generously. For those who wish to, there is still time!”
Well done to the winning team: Arien Patel, Julian Carpegna and Oliver Michael.
