THE Ghana 2 adventure of a lifetime took them to Accra, Ghana, where they took part in community projects and sightseeing activities.

The students had spent many months fundraising to fund their trip and gathered clothes, stationery and educational supplies from friends and family to donate to those they met in Ghana.

The group visited Cape Coast Castle, where slaves were kept before being shipped to the Caribbean or America during the slave trade, as well as Kakum National Rainforest where they completed a hike and canopy walk high among the treetops.

Other experiences included a meal in a restaurant built over a crocodile lake, a visit to a monkey sanctuary, drumming lessons and teaching children at Christ The King Primary School.

Andrew Scott, Ghana expedition school co-ordinator, said: “A significant aspect of the trip was seeing Burnt Mill students replicating some outstanding teaching methods to the pupils they were asked to teach in Ghana.

“Students were also involved in building concrete floors for the school as previously the floors were made of sand.”

Each Burnt Mill student was issued with a traditional scarf, bracelet and certificate indicating they had contributed to improving lives in Ghana.
