Beech Hall School Pupils Embark on African Adventure


Pupils from Beech Hall School have recently returned from a twelve-day expedition to Zanzibar, where they spent much-valued time developing their skills and learning of other cultures.

During their visit, the group of fourteen from the Tytherington-based school partnered with a local facility, Fuoni Primary School. The pupils engaged in opportunities to advance their leadership skills when teaching English, Maths and Sports, and tested their DIY abilities by building and painting walls at the school.

Pupils and staff relished the opportunity to join their local tour guides in attending and experiencing an energetic and enthusiastic Christian church service. They also enjoyed their leisure time taking in the sights of the country, finishing their days at the beach.

Headmaster James Allen commented,

“Zanzibar offered a unique and wonderful experience, and it was an honour and a privilege to learn so much both in the school and around the beautiful island.

“The pupils have been outstanding, I am so proud of their commitment, resilience and openness to these new experiences, which I hope will have a lasting impact on their lives, attitudes and decisions.”
