Barlastone Park school is situated on the outskirts of Lusaka, the capital city of Zambia, and lies in one of the poorest districts.
The school was built slowly by building and adding one classroom per year over a period of 14 years and finally became a full Primary and Secondary school in 1996. It currently caters for around 450 pupils with an average class size of 30 pupils. The school charges basic fees to cover teacher salaries and administration and maintenance expenses but depends on donations and sponsorship for development and expansion.
The money raised through this event will help support the building of a new science block, which the current school is lacking. This will allow students to carry out basic experiments and apply their learning in physics, biology and chemistry. Any and all donations will be gratefully appreciated.
On behalf of Barlastone Park School, thank you!
