Highdown School are currently involved in a rugby based charity called TourAid. The charity provides children, in deprived countries, the opportunity to tour the UK whilst staying with host families.
It is with great pleasure to state that we have been linked with Orkeeswa Secondary School, Lashaine Village, Tanzania.
This is mutually beneficial to host families, the community and the children from Tanzania. Some of the main aims of the charity are: to increase confidence, self-esteem and aspirations; sustainable relationships across geographical and cultural boundaries and; global and cultural education and learning.
Fundraising is complete! Thank you to all who contributed. Our visitors are currently over in the UK visiting Highdown School. Read more.
