Next Trip to Uganda

Two Sixth Form students are set for the experience of a lifetime.

The next CBA visit to the Discovery Centre in Uganda, will take place in October and headboy Chris Usher and fellow Sixth Former Christina Mangin have been selected to go, after applying for the opportunity.

Before they go they must jointly raise £2,000 and so have come up with a series of fundraising initiatives to help raise the cash which goes towards travel costs.

Accompanying them on the trip will be BHE Teacher John Atkinson.

Christina, who is studying Business Btec and Travel and Tourism Btec, said: "After hearing about the experience of the first trip to Uganda last year, I decided that I really wanted to go. It will be a great cultural experience and something that will inform the rest of my life.

Chris, who was recently appointed to the role of headboy, said: "I will be doing some research before I go and I have been to Gambia a few years ago so have already had a small experience of African life.

"It is a great opportunity and I am looking forward to help building links between CBA and the Discovery Centre."

The Discovery centre is a residential resource which was set up in 1994 in response to the AIDS situation in the country.

It is run in partnership with the Northamptonshire based Christian charity Adventure Projects Trust and Youth With A Mission Uganda.

BHE Teacher Kirsty Farrar said: "We are delighted the link with the Discovery Centre in continuing and becoming more established as it will be a fruitful relationship for both the Academy and the Centre."
