Sheffield Girls' in India
On Wednesday 15 February, 42 students in Years 10-13, together with four members of staff will be departing Manchester airport and jetting off to Delhi, India, for an exciting 10 day trip.
The purpose of the excursion is to support and maintain the school’s links with, and carry out voluntary work at the Riverside Free School and with the ISPCK Young Women’s Project in Delhi.
A representative from the school has visited Sheffield Girls’ to discuss the work that our students will be doing in the link school. They have been busy planning activities and games to play with the children; lots of fundraising has been done during the autumn term and arrangements have been made to take children’s books, educational resources and items of stationery to give to the children that they will meet in India. Girls in the Junior School have also made a selection of toys and activities that will be donated to the Riverside Free School.
Anna Eason in Year 12 expressed her excitement about the trip and hoped that the visit would make a real difference to the children in the free school. ‘During the stay we will have a chance to participate in a range of activities; volunteering, cooking, shopping, sightseeing and much more. The trip should be an incredibly rewarding experience,’ she said.
The Year 10-13 trip is part of a whole programme of international residential visits organised by Sheffield Girls’ each year.
