  Khola Primary School, Blantyre, Malawi    


We have received a letter of thanks for the money raised for our ‘sponsor a kitchen project ‘in Malawi.  The total sum of £8432.87 raised from our Fashion Shows will be used to build a kitchen for Khola primary School, Blantyre in Southern Malawi which houses 1100 children.  The money will pay for building and equipping a full sized kitchen where volunteers will be able to cook Likuni Phala (the local dish) every day for the children there.

The kitchen will be a brick built building consisting of 1 main cooking area with 2 small locked storerooms.  One is for the firewood for the stoves and the other is for food and utensils.  The kitchen will also be used as a classroom when cooking is finished.

We were given the opportunity to choose the wording for the Kitchen sign which will be on the outside of the building.  Our 6th years decided on the following:



‘ We’re all in this together’

donated by your Scottish friends from Holy Cross High School Hamilton.

Once the kitchen is built we will receive an indepth report on our school, outlining the enrolment, local community, and effect of Mary’s Meals on the school.  It will also be’ jam packed’ with lovely photos of the children.

  Celebrating Success    

Once again our young people in S4, S5 and S6 produced a tremendous set of SQA Examination results, gaining just reward for all of their hard work and effort. Indeed, the results achieved by our young people in S5 for Higher Grades, were the best results ever achieved in Holy Cross High School. Not to be outdone, our young people in S4 maintained the highest ever scores achieved last session.

A truly outstanding performance by our truly outstanding students!
