Pencil cases for Peru

 

Pencil cases for Peru

Our Year 5 ‘Global Ambassadors’ have been recycling pencil cases and stationary supplies to send to girls at the Chicuchas Wasi (CW) School in Peru. A school which educates girls from remote, rural communities, to help them achieve economic independence.

However, as with all schools in Peru, CW has been forced to close, due to the pandemic and may not open again until March 2021. Yet while many rural Andean students won’t have had any lessons at all during the school closures the CW School has been providing lessons via video that their students can access using a simple cell phone. 

The teachers in Peru have been delighted with the way their students have adapted to home learning and stressed the need for educational supplies – especially pens and pencils.  

Speaking of this initiative, Mrs Newton, a teacher at the Junior School who also leads the girls’ outreach programmes said, “Connie, Myah, Alexandra and Maisha have successfully coordinated the collection of pencil cases. We also held a home clothes day to raise the money to post them out to Peru. 

“We believe it is really important for our girls to appreciate, from an early age, that they should have a positive impact on the lives of others. To that end, we elect a different team of Global Ambassadors each term and task them with initiating a project that helps others.”  

Our links with CS School began in 2015. Two schools which appear very different, but which share the same values and the same ambitions for girls – and which both have red uniforms!
