In addition, St Marys School Calne, a leading independent UK girls school, will be coming out to Zambia from 23 October - 1 November 2013 with 15 A’Level pupils and 2 members of staff. They are coming to Zambia as part of our Bicentenary celebrations to help build a school in stages up in Chama for vulnerable girls and orphans for our Official Charity, the Anglican Street Children’s Programme. Chama is located close to where Livingstone died in 1873. St Mary’s School is very excited and greatly looking forward to coming out during their autumn half-term leave and there is huge anticipation up in Chama as the villagers prepare for their arrival.
