Tafo Day 2014
On 18th July, our students had a non-uniform day, off timetable and they spent the day immersed in fun activities designed to help them appreciate the African culture and the different lifestyles therein. In addition it was a fundraising day with the proceeds being sent to our friends in Presby Junior High School in Tafo, Ghana.
Among the activities were water carrying, igniting kindle with a glass or a flint, making African food, playing African drums, playing an African game known as Abula, making African masks and heating up water in a paper receptacle.
Students are already planning the next fundraising events.
