Marpool pupils support Tanzania

Kind-hearted pupils from Marpool School have done their bit to support children in Tanzania.

The school’s IMPACT group spent the year raising funds for the school at Seeway Tanzania, a project which provides a home for orphaned and vulnerable children.

The children held fundraising events throughout the year, concluding with an ‘Aqua-que’ held at the school’s sports day.

The children raised �1,027 in total, and after the Aqua-que Rebecca Jackson, of Seeway Tanzania, received a cheque from headteacher Rachel Pattison.

Mrs Pattison said: “We are very proud of all the efforts the children have made to raise money for Tanzania.

“It was their project - not the school’s – and they organised all sorts of events which were a great success.”
