Fundraising for the 2018 expedition is up and running! Back in 2016 the school community including staff, pupils, friends and family raised an astounding £23,234 to fund our special project in Dzenza Primary School in Malawi! This money went towards building five new classrooms for pupils to learn in a safe and comfortable environment. We cannot thank everyone who donated enough and your money was VERY well spent as you can see from the pictures below. Over the next 2 years the 2018 team will be working just as hard to raise money for their special project and we hope that with the help of our fantastic school community we can achieve the same success! The next fundraising event will be the 2017 race night which will be held in the school on 24th February at 7pm. This will be £5 per ticket and an over 18 event. Please come along and join the fun!

Every day at Dzenza Primary School in Malawi one teacher can teach up to 350 pupils in one class with little or no resources. The condition of the classrooms at Dzenza Primary School is extremely poor, with many classes in a state of disrepair and with no doors and windows. And despite this challenging environment both pupils and staff always have a smile on their faces.
Gleniffer High School is working in conjunction with the Scottish charity Classrooms For Malawi to provide a safe learning environment for children in Malawi. A group from the school went to Malawi in 2016 and managed to fundraise £23,234 to refurbish a block of 5 classrooms for pupils.
These classrooms were last were worked on in 1946. These classrooms, which were still in use, were highly dangerous as the walls were crumbling around the pupils - definitely not a safe learning environment. thanks to the support for the gleniffer community These classrooms are now totally rebuilt and refurbished and are being used by all the pupils in the school to give them the best chance in getting a good education in a safe and comfortable learning environment.
