Memories Made at TRS

We Charity Visit

Students at The Regis School had the opportunity to learn about life thousands of miles away as they spent the day finding out about the Massai people who live in  Kenya. As well as hearing first hand stories from Jack and Geraldine Prosser, who had visited  Narok County in Kenya as part of the We Charity, they got to try on Massai Shuka’s (red and black robes) and admire intricate beadwork. The A Team learnt about the work the  We Charity do to support education, health, water, food and economic opportunities, so that basic rights can be uphelp. As Geraldine says it is about giving people , ‘a hand up, not a hand out’. They also heard inspirational stories from our guests and found out how they had followed their dreams and work together with the We Charity to make a positive difference to people’s lives.

 

Mrs Saunders, Assistant Principal said, ‘Today was a fantastic opportunity for our students for a number of reasons. Not only did they find out about life in another culture, they heard how they had the resources to make a positive difference in the world. If they have belief, are determined and live their life with kindness and care for others they can have a really positive impact on the world we live in’

 

Students were so inspired they have decided to make Rafiki friendship bracelets to sell to raise funds to support a school in Enosooito village.
