Year 8 Community project expedition to The Gambia

We have a very exciting opportunity for year 8 pupils to be part of a community project expedition to The Gambia.  The Fairfax Academy Trust expedition team will travel to The Gambia in March 2024 to work alongside a local Gambian community on a worthwhile and sustainable village project.  The students will learn about life in The Gambia and experience first-hand rural Gambian culture.   

The expedition is a great opportunity for personal development and to improve the soft skills that will make students stand out when applying to employers, apprenticeships, or colleges/universities.   

The expedition will be led by Venture Force, who have extensive experience in leading purposeful expeditions all around the world.  

We will be holding student assemblies on 7th June 2022 to inform students about the expedition.  There will then be a parent presentation on Monday 13th of June at  6pm for the parents of those pupils who are interested in joining the team.   

Please use this google form to sign up so we know how many parents will be attending.
