As you may be aware, the
School will be undertaking an expedition to the remote mountains of Eastern Kyrgyzstan
in July 2007. The aims will be:
· to give students the experience of taking part in an adventurous expedition requiring extensive planning, training and preparation
· to climb high mountains (12 000 ft)
· to meet with local people and school children and experience an entirely different culture and environment
King Edward VII School has a fine history of expeditions and we are delighted to be building on the 2004/05 Christmas trip to the deserts of Morocco.
The 22 students, aged 15-18, have been working hard to secure funding to cover the costs of the trip. Much like the School they reflect a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences.
We would be delighted to hear from you if you are aware of any sponsorship or aid the School could access to ensure that all of the students who are signed up are able take part in the expedition.
If you would like any further information please contact the school.
Thank you for your support.
