A huge thank you to the Penrice and local community for supporting our upcoming school aid trip to Ghana! Thank you all for your support and generosity,

We know that these funds will go a long way to supporting our Ghanaian sponsor school, making a positive impact on the lives of so many whilst also developing our students’ character through such an unforgettable overseas experience.

Mr Sullivan
Ghana Trip Coordinator

In just a few weeks’ time, a group of students from Penrice Academy will be embarking on a trip to Ghana to complete voluntary work at a school in the Volta Region of Ghana. Over recent months, staff, students, parents and local businesses have supported a range of fundraising activities to raise money for equipment and stationery for the Ghana school and to support the students going on the trip. A number of parents have also donated some much needed items for the children at the school in Ghana; items which will be very well received when our students arrive at the school in July.

The fundraising activities that have taken place over recent months have included a cake sale, a non-uniform day, fundraising gym challenges, a staff raffle, an Easter egg raffle and some very generous donations from local businesses. Staff have also supported our fundraising efforts with Mrs Malcolm’s tomato plants and Mrs Hatch’s hand-crafted cards proving popular purchases with our staff. A special mention must also go to Mrs Skyba who has played a pivotal role in our fundraising efforts – particular the Easter events which raised £2,335.48 alone. We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to our students, parents and the wider community for all of your support with our fundraising.
