World Link

Each year we commemorate ANZAC Day because of an airman killed in World War II who is buried in our churchyard – we communicate with his family in Dannevirke, New Zealand.


In the past we have had a link with Kids2Kids, a school in Nairobi, Kenya. Thanks to a grandparent of children in school, we exchanged letters and donated old uniform to the school for street children, helping them get back into mainstream education. We also fund-raised to buy them books.


We also held events to help renovate a secondary school’s blind hostel in Dhulikhel, Nepal, which had been destroyed in the 2015 earthquake. This came about thanks to a sabbatical one of our teachers took volunteer teaching in Nepal, which helped us form links at the time and exchange letters.
