Children from a Ugandan orphanage won the hearts of students, parents and staff on a two-day visit to Holbrook Academy. The 10-18 year-old members of the Destiny Africa choir stayed with local families and gave two spectacular song and dance performances at the Academy. They also joined in with sporting activities and led an assembly describing life in Kampala.
Frank Anstee-Parry, the Academy’s Head of Religious Education and organiser of the visit, said: “The children played together, ate together and learned together. It was inspiring.”
Academy Principal, Dr Simon Letman, said: “This was a hugely successful visit. The positive outlook on life held by these young people is truly inspirational. We are developing a strong connection with the Kampala Children’s Centre. We have already raised a considerable sum to support their projects and students now intend to do even more.”
