Sixth formers and staff from Culford School ventured to Malawi for a ‘life-changing’ charity trip to support and teach children at schools and orphanages.

It is the seventh year the school has visited the country and they delivered lessons at a school in the Lower Shire Valley focusing on aspects relating to human rights, reproduction, STIs and gender stereotyping.

They also went to an orphanage where they helped update the library and garden and distributed much needed blankets, clothes and games to the 120 orphans and volunteers.

Praising the student’s delivery of the lessons, Andy Deane, head of languages at Culford Senior School, said: “Many of the youngsters taught by our students had little to no accurate knowledge of these topics and displayed superstitious, sometimes mythical beliefs.”
