"Experience of a lifetime" in Nepal
Students and staff from Chailey School enjoyed an 'experience of a lifetime' in Nepal. They spent time soaking up the culture, hiking in the Himalayas and supporting a village school. Speaking to students and staff on their return it is clear that this has been a life-changing experience for many. Among the highlights were the work with the school, the opportunity to understand such different cultures and the beautiful landscapes. I know many students would like to return again at some point in their future lives.
Over the next couple of weeks some of the students will be talking to the rest of the school about the highlights in assemblies.
It is also amazing to hear that members of the public praised our students publicly on both the outward journey to Nepal and the return flight. One person simply did not believe Chailey School could be a state school.
