Planning the Bosnia Trip

Planning the Bosnia Trip

 Our Kids Foundation is a UK registered charity that designs, initiates and funds long term strategic projects to improve the lives and future prospects of children and young adults in Bosnia and Herzegovina. For the last 5 years, Chelsea Academy has supported this Charity; part of this support includes an annual visit to an orphanage in Mostar, Bosnia.

The annual trip runs during the last week of the summer term and the first week of the summer holidays.  The trip gives students the chance to contribute positively to young people’s lives in Bosnia and is a really an enjoyable experience. Students will stay at the orphanage in Mostar and spend time running activities for the young people there that include Whitewater Rafting, a boat trip round the Croatian coast, Cinema trips, Sightseeing tours and much more. Students attending the trip need to fund raise the sum of £750 each. In previous years they have organised charity events, bake sales, part time jobs like packing bags at local supermarkets.

The trip is great for UCAS and can be used as a project for students wanting to complete their EPQ. This year there is space for 10 students to go on this trip. It will initially be open to Year 12 students but we are also looking to hear from students in Year 11 aiming to stay for Sixth Form at Chelsea Academy. Last year both year 11 and 12 students participated in the trip.

Please contact Miss Homer if you are interested, as soon as possible, before places run out!
