Our Sawubona report into the 2018 South Africa Visit with photos and moving quotes from St. Mary's and Mnyakanya students has been published today!

Thank you to all the students who each contributed their honest thoughts.

Maeve Hendron: "I loved everything about the visit, but if I had to choose a favourite day it would be the last day at Mnyakanya: the sports and reading festival. Watching the Bambisanani leaders use the skills we had taught them over the past number of days evoked a true sense of pride. Regardless of the pouring rain everyone who took part enjoyed themselves and came away from the festivals feeling as if they had achieved something, whether that was learning a new sport or knowing that you have helped someone succeed in something new. The experience of Bambisanani was truly unique and has helped me to appreciate the opportunities that I have and how I can use my own talents to help others."
