Rosa's Nepal Visit

IMG_0789

Falmouth School student Rosa Davies has returned from Nepal, where she spent her Easter Holidays volunteering and experiencing some fantastic adventures. Rosa, in Year 7, travelled with her mother to a school in Bardia which is in the remote west of the country.

Whilst in Bardia, Rosa saw first-hand, the work being done to build new classrooms using the money she helped raise with her sponsored swim. She made lasting friendships with the pupils at the school and got invited back to the home of one of the girls. Rosa also helped do some building work and taught the pupils at the school in their bamboo classrooms- lessons about surf lifesaving (that she takes part in at Gyllyngvase club), lessons about maths and spelling and disco dancing!

Rosa embraced the local culture enjoying various delicacies, wildlife and embracing the climate. She climbed a mountain 3,500 metres high and slept above the clouds amongst temperatures dropping to -5 degrees celsius. She ate yak’s cheese and even saw a tiger in the jungle!

Martha’s mother, Martha Dixon, said “Rosa had a phenomenal time and learnt valuable lessons of international connection and contribution. Thank you so much to the school for allowing Rosa some time out of her studies to go on this trip.”

Rosa is due to share her experiences with students in upcoming geography lessons.
