Tanzania Summer Expedition | Lomond Independent School

Tanzania Summer Expedition

This summer, a group of Lomond School pupils embarked upon a 3 week humanitarian trip to Tanzania. Working with the charity Moving Mountains, the group were tasked with helping to build a village school.

In their breaks from building work our young people got to know the villagers and had lots of fun running games and activities for the children there. They even pitched in with the cooking!

The teachers accompanying them, including Dr Cotter, reported that they are extremely proud of our pupils who have coped so well and fully embraced the experience. During their time in Tazania, the group left the village to climb Mount Meru which is Africa’s highest mountain at 4,600m. And they couldn’t leave Tanzania without seeing a bit of Kilimanjaro so half of the group visited the starting point for those tackling the famous peak, while the rest ventured to see some stunning waterfalls; the museum of the local Chagga tribe; and to the market where they had a go at pounding, grinding and roasting coffee.

Our fantastic Lomond School team completed their building work at Ngaroni primary school; exceeding the target for work and fundraising. Foundations of the new classroom were laid, ground was levelled and walls were started for the next group to continue later this month.
