Well done to all our #WKGSCommunity who took part in today's Wirral Walk, completing the 12 mile round trip from West Kirby to Heswall to raise money for development projects in the Karonga District of northern Malawi. £1400 has been raised so far. Amazing efforts all round. https://t.co/4eQW2AMrkC
Wirral Way Walk – our school community together helping others
Congratulations to our WKGS Community who came together to complete the 12 mile walk along the Wirral Way from West Kirby to Heswall and back, to raise money for development projects in the Karonga District of northern Malawi. Since 2003 our sponsored walks, has raised money for our special overseas project - school building work, making a difference in over five rural schools in China, building two from scratch in very poor rural areas. Several hundred students from WKGS have now been to China to see where the money was spent. We have moved our fundraising to support new projects in rural Malawi. Funds have been sent to Malawi to help child education and female empowerment. We have funded the building of new sanitation blocks and water supplies for three maternity centres where before there were none and pregnant women had to go to the toilet in a nearby field. This work is directly linked to development concepts that all students have studied at all key stages of the geography curriculum.
