Two of our students have been selected to take part in a trip of a lifetime to Morocco with World Challenge.

Kyi Asumang and Blaine Crawford are among 20 students from across the city who have been chosen.

The trip is being organised by World Challenge in partnership with DANCOP and it will take place during the 2019 Easter break.

DANCOP is the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Collaborative Outreach Programme, a partnership between the local Higher Education providers including universities and colleges.

Students will spend 10 nights in Morocco and during the trip they will complete a community volunteering project in a school as well as a trek through the Atlas Mountains and a trip to Marrakesh.

Kyi said they were both happy to have been offered a place on the trip.

He said: “We had an email to say we’d been selected and we were really pleased. It’s an opportunity to do something different. We have already had a training weekend and we made friends with students from other schools who are going on the trip. We learnt about cooking outside and health and safety outdoors.”

Aofie Galletly, assistant headteacher, congratulated the boys on being selected.

She said: “We are immensely proud of the two boys for the work that they did to apply and be accepted onto the World Challenge and for the way that they have seized the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that has been presented to them.”
