We have just arrived in Moshi just outside Kilimanjaro National Park after completing our trek phase. All students trekked, with full backpacks & tents, for 3 days, over 30 miles through the Usumbaras Mountains. All students did exceptionally well showing great spirit and amazing physical and mental resilience.

Guided by locals Jerome and Charles we experienced some stunning views, tough accents, amazing wildlife and dinner and an overnight stay in a local convent.

The next 4 days we are moving to our project phase where we visits and stay at a local school and help renovate and teach.

Year 8s have studied Stone Cold by Robert Swindells, a text which explores homelessness from the viewpoint of a teenage boy. To raise the students awareness further, we became involved in a project to collect much needed sleeping bags for the local homeless. ... See MoreSee Less

Over the current academic year, Reception pupils have worked on the Nationally recognised ‘CREST’ Science Award. They have all achieved the ‘STAR’ level. Each child participated in a minimum of 8 enquiry based science experiments. The award encourages children to make predictions, problem solve a solution and draw conclusions based on what they have observed. In addition to developing their science skills, it has vastly improved their communication and language skills.
The children are very proud of their achievements.

Great job Year 8! They've worked hard to collect stationery and fill pencil cases for Heart Felt Tips. They'll now be collaborating with Year 5 pupils, who have been working with Southend Foodbank, to get them out to the children that need them most. Thanks to all the Thorpe Hall families that contributed. #heartfelttips #foodbank #giveback #southend #welovestationery ... See MoreSee Less

Looks and sounds like they all had a super day. Henry wanted umpteen Percy the Park Keeper stories at bedtime tonight- I think the encounters with the rabbit and hedgehog have inspired him. And apparently hedgehogs are ‘crispy’! 😂

Too cute 😍

Having arrived at our hotel in Dar es Salaam,Tanzania at 4am this morning students were up at 8:30 and ready to start organising elements of the trip. They have today, booked transport to Usmabaras Mountains near Kilimanjaro, organised accommodation needed over the next 2 weeks, planned the 4 day trek and bought the groups food for the next few days. All in all a busy day.
They rewarded their efforts with dinner in a restaurant before an early rise for the 6 hour bus journey to the mountains.

All students have played a very important role in the planning and done exceptionally well despite the obvious tiredness.
