Academy reaches out to Kenya
After several visits by the Maasai Warriors, the Academy has chosen to support their Kenyan Community School, The Osiligi Obaya Primary School, in becoming an offical long term partner.
We are very fortunate to have incredible, state-of-the-art facilities and excellent learning opportunities and to further encourage students to aspire and become global citizens, the Academy has decided to raise £5000 to build a new teachers' house in Kenya, which will be called 'The Bourne Academy House'.
Staff and students will take part in numerous events to help raise funds; a sponsored four mile walk (the same distance the Osiligi pupils walk barefoot every day), a sponsored jump ( the Warriors are renowned for their jumping!), Mufti Days, Christmas Fayre and many other fundraising activities.
Longer term, the Academy hopes to arrange a visit, taking a group of staff and students out to Kenya. In the meantime, they will do everything they can to support the Kenyan school and to reach its fundraising goal by next July.
