Elizabeth College, Guernsey 2019 Visit
Updated: Jun 17, 2019
We have been blessed to have annual visits from Elizabeth College since 2013, and we were delighted to welcome them again this February.
Each year, a team from Elizabeth College have come and played a huge role in shaping TCP, often developing the children's outdoor play area. This year, alongside spending time at Turi Children's Project and assisting with activities and home visits, the group spent much of their time at Green Park Primary School. Green Park is a settlement for Displaced Persons, not far from St Andrew's School, which has been established for about 10 years. Senior School students from St Andrew's regularly visit the nursery there, and we have been developing our relationship with the primary school.
Following the amazing work that Elizabeth College did last year in building a new climbing frame at TCP, we asked them to build another one for Green Park Primary, and again they did a fantastic job. Working with a local builder they were able to construct a great climbing frame, which has made such a difference to the school where the children there would otherwise not have a lot to play with.
The group also spent time helping in lessons at Green Park, and were amazed at the good level of English in the school and thoroughly enjoyed their time there.
We are so grateful for this regular support from Elizabeth College and the way they enrich the work of TCP in the local community. We are looking forward to welcoming them back again next year! If you are based overseas and interested in visiting TCP, drop us a line on our Support page to see how you can get involved. Photos of this year's climbing frame are on our Gallery.
