  • We check in for the whole flight, so are treated as international travellers, hence the three hour check-in Long flight … something to do? (Kindle. . . N.B. battery life?)
  • I will travel down in person. 7th June. MUST have passports, photos and form completed by end of school on Monday 6th June (First day back)Cost of this included in the trip.
  • My arm is still sore!!
  • Please note excess &amp; Valuables limit…
  • Sleeping: Tents – taken out before &amp; set up ready for us. They will be checked for ‘holes’!Eating: Combination of at the campsite (included in the cost), self-sufficient &amp; with the Maasi. All costs included for general meals. Vegetarian; there is a very common local dish that is, effectively, rice &amp; veg. . . Diet will be fairly monotonous but perfectly suitable., Washing: camp site has full segregated shower blocksSafety: General safety rule: No girl to ever be alone. If going away from a group location, must tell one of the staff first.Kit: As before .. Rick?Money: Cannot get Tanzania currency anywhere other than in Tanzania. We will be taking in pre-paid credit cards, with all the trip funds loaded, along with another, specifically for ‘pocket money’.To have ‘pocket money’:- envelope, with Cheque (“Bolton School”). Student’s name &amp; form on the front. Returned to me. We will then act as a ‘bank’. There will be exchange &amp; transaction charges, but no way around this…
  • 1. ConstructionThose in this group will work alongside Maasai to get the construction of a new outreach centre from ground level to walls by the end of the week. LivLife and the Maasai will take the brunt of the strain so for the girls it can be as hard or easy work as they want. Would be suitable for people who like a challenge and enjoy getting stuck in at their own pace with more physical work.2. TextilesThis would be a series of workshops and exercises aimed at getting across western fashions to the tailoring students. This would include styles in products ranging from dresses to bags. We would need to structure this very well and there would need to be a lot of facilitation but there could be an aim of working towards a fashion show or something.3. TeachingThis is broadly titled &quot;teaching&quot; but would actually be more about academic pursuits in general - either through the creation of teaching materials or through other ways of improving English such as drama or music. There would be the option of helping out in the kindergarten, and I&apos;m sure this would be very appealing to the girls, as the kids are pretty cute, but for the length of time they&apos;re here they wouldn&apos;t be able to make such a long-lasting difference in the kindergarten as they would in, say, the English classes. Of course, we could always combine the two.
  • Hopefully this will be OK. The school may be closed for the holidays, but even if it is we’ll still be able to visit the rooms
  • **Staff have 24/7 access to working phones to call UK in event of need.

    43. 43. The Education Centre offers courses in English, French, Computing, numeracy and literacy. The education is available to the local people (mostly maasai) who missed out on formal education in their younger years. In addition it offers an after school club to local children and a kindergarden every morning until lunchtime.<br />All secondary school education in Tanzania must be paid for. Costs vary from government run schools to private schools.<br />The Meserani Education Centre is free to all that enrol. <br />There is the possibility Bolton School could have a permanent link with the centre via internet (once it is installed) or skype. Our students could be involved in helping provide educational resource through fundraising, online language lessons or tailoring a technology project to be tested on site.<br />Many sections of Gold DofE are fulfilled by a project such as this. eg. volunteer section, residential section.<br />
    44. 44. Expedition<br />Expeditions will be primarily on foot, with the exception of food drop offs by support vehicle.<br />Students would be accompanied by a local maasai. He would be acting as our guide and on hand to explain about his culture and country. Having made the contacts we would be able to access areas otherwise difficult to see by tourists and be treated to a very unusual and unique experience. <br />The expedition would culminate with a one day safari at the Ngorongoro Crater. <br />
