Tanzania Project

Tanzania Project

Tanzania Project is our new and exciting project Africa project, part of the IB CAS programme for Grade 11 students. It will be collaboration between ISH and two schools in Tanzania, Sarawatt Secondary School and Heilotu Primary School in Mbulu.
Already the students are involved in many fundraising activities, which will be aimed towards helping these schools with improving their facilities like dormitories, kitchens, classrooms equipment, computer labs, stationery etc.

At the end of the school year we will travel to Tanzania to visit the two schools, meet the students, interact and involve themselves in the projects on the ground. The trip will be two to three weeks in the summer every year where the first weeks will be working and collaborating with the local schools on the identified projects followed by a few days of rest and recreation.

Sri Lanka Project

Sri Lanka Project

When the tsunami of December 26th 2004 hit the coast of Sri Lanka it devastated lives and livelihoods. Many children were left without parents. One area particularly badly affected was the southern region of Hambantota. Our project was set up in January 2005 in order to help rebuild lives and communities. Five preschools were built in this area with the initial funds raised.

In June 2006, 11 students accompanied by their chaperones Mrs Gittins and Mrs Gray, visited the projects and were warmly welcomed at all the villages. We spent our time there planting fruit gardens, painting and playing with the children.

Since then, each year a group of high school students hold a variety of fundraising activities including a Sri Lanka Cup golf tournament, bake sales, student dances and fun sports days to help raise money to maintain the schools and supply basic equipment to enrich the lives of these children.

Help us to build a better future for them.

Ghana Project

Ghana Project

The Ghana Project began in 2000 and ended in 2014 after successfully developing and working over the years in a remote area called Asutsuare. This project was for 11th Grade students as part of CAS for their IB Diploma. The students helped to build classroom blocks, a library and small computer laboratory for the Junior School, greatly enhancing the ability for staff to deliver lessons. Previously, classes were taught outside.

They also worked with the Senior School and helped build a Recreation Centre, which included an Internet Café, sports facilities and accommodation for the students. Previously, these facilities were of an extremely poor standard.

As well as building, Ghana project sent many items by sea in a container. These items assisted the students and teachers and include computers for the school and staff and many books and other items needed for the school.

Each year about 17 students and 3 teachers travelled to Ghana to work and learn about the rich Ghanaian culture. This project was coordinated by retired teachers Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence.
