Senior Secondary School – Regent Village

http://www.action4schools.gi/regent-senior-secondary-school-project/

Regent village is in need of a Senior Secondary School and we plan to assist with the provision of a new building that will hopefully decrease the number of pupils that drop out of education due to the lack of a Senior Secondary. Many families cannot afford to send their children to senior schools located in Freetown, attending secondary schools that are far away is expensive and somewhat dangerous given the conditions of the roads and chaotic traffic and put simply children do not have the means to move from Regent Village to Freetown on a daily basis and many have no choice but to drop out of education which is an awful situation, most children want to continue in education and are unable to due to the fact that they have no Senior Secondary School to attend close by.

There are over 8,500 students registered in the Regent District and the community is desperate to have a larger Junior Secondary School and its first ever Senior Secondary School. We built a new extension to the Junior Secondary school in 2017 – http://www.action4schools.gi/junior-secondary-school-regent/ and they already need bigger facilities. Many of the Junior Secondary school pupils are now having classes outside in makeshift classrooms – see below:

We are looking for your generous support to make this important project a reality.

Gibraltar is blessed with large, modern schools where children can thrive, learn and enjoy themselves in the best surroundings and where they can also look forward to a bright future with their hard work and the guidance of their teachers and staff.

Let us support the children of Regent Village to at least have decent schools where they too may be able to look forward to a brighter future. The children of Regent Village urgently need a Senior Secondary School, let us work together and build one !

Please consider making a one-off donation or setting up a monthly standing order, your support will make a difference to so many needy children 100% guaranteed.
