Zambia Immersion Programme
In June of 2016, seven students and two teachers visited Zambia as part of the CBS Zambia Immersion Programme. The school has been linked with St Edmund’s school in Mazabuka since our first trip to Zambia in 2003. The purpose of these visits is to give our students and teachers an experience of what it is like to live and work in a Developing Country. During our stay, the group visited local schools, the hospital, the prision and other places of interest. We brought with us much needed aid in the form of money, medicine and educational materials. Our school continues to fund and help specific projects. These efforts develop the on-going links between our school and the community in Mazabuka. Our work has been acknowledged on Nationwide Television, and we have featured on the RTE programme, ‘An Evening Prayer’ on fourteen separate occasions. It is envisaged that every three years students and teachers will travel to Zambia to continue to raise awareness of life in the Developing World.
