Kenya Immersion Project: Due to the recent terrorist attack in Nairobi and in the interests of the safety of the students and teachers travelling to this area of Kenya, it was decided to defer this trip until a later date. All concerned were very disappointed at this but the safety and well being of all involved was of paramount importance. We would like to thank everybody in the area for their support amd sponsorship and assure everybody that funds raised as part of this project will be given to the school in Kenya. We would hope that the immersion programme will continue & an alternative visit can be arranged.
