Capital Document Solutions were delighted to support the St Margaret’s High School recent visit to Malawi. Fraser Robertson, Contract Manager heard about the trip, through North Lanarkshire Council, a long-standing Capital customer.
Pupils from an Airdrie school have written about their experiences of visiting Malawi.
The diaries, titled “Friendship, Family and Faith” are the accounts of the 2016 visit as part of North Lanarkshire Council’s ‘Aiming Higher in Malawi’ project.
Stephen Snee, Head Teacher of St Margaret’s High School, was part of the 2016 delegation. He said: “It was a real privilege to be part of the group. The visit was everything that I expected and so much more. I met some of the most inspirational people from the planet and was with some of the most inspirational young people from Scotland.”
Over the years, St Margaret’s has supported a number of initiatives involving Malawi. These have included sponsoring an orphanage, partnering a school and constructing the St Margaret’s women’s refuge.
The school also founded the Makhoza Catholic Women’s Cooperative. Pupils have visited the country to educate Malawians on health issues.
Jim Logue, Leader of North Lanarkshire Council, said: “The diaries provide a wonderful insight into some of the work being done in Malawi by the school, in particular through supporting the work of Sister Anna Tomassi who feeds pre-school children and leads a prison missionary.”
Fraser Robertson said “We were delighted to support the trip by printing their diaries and hearing the experiences of their trip to Malawi. It’s also fantastic to hear young people being involved in the North Lanarkshire Councils “Aiming Higher in Malawi” charity.”
The diaries have been kindly printed by Capital. Therefore, this enables all the money raised to go directly to the school’s Malawi funds.
