Gambia Day

Shirland Primary School have been supporting Phil Basterfield, from AVSSP, to raise money for sports equipment to take to schools in the Gambia. All children and staff came to school dressed in red, blue, green and white colours to represent the Gambian flag and paid a £1 donation. Each class carried out Gambian based activities as well as a member of our school sharing their photos and objects from their own trips to the Gambia. Phil Basterfield presented an assembly, sharing the background and aims of the project, and promised to return with photos of the equipment being used in Gambian schools, after his trip out there.
