Bridlington Pupil To Help Underprivileged Ghana Children

Bridlington Pupil To Help Underprivileged Ghana Children

Published by Karen Liu at 1:06pm 14th November 2019.

A Bridlington pupil is to help underprivileged children in Ghana.

Keane Heslop, who goes to Bridlington School Sixth Form, is planning to complete a 12-month international placement in Ghana by teaching English, Maths and other subjects.

Keane said:

"This is a challenge I look forward to as I will have to be independent and manage my own budget as well as learning how to teach children with a range of abilities. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and skills to help others improve.

During Sixth Form I have helped teach in Maths lessons of various abilities.

I have learned that children solve problems in different ways and I have been able to find different ways to explain tasks in a way that they understand, which I will put in practice during my year overseas.

For me to achieve my goal of volunteering overseas, I must raise a grand total of £6200. I need to have £3000 by January and the rest by June 2020.

During my year overseas, I will be teaching English as a foreign language to school children, as well as maths and other subjects.

I have the opportunity to begin extra-curricular activities for the local community.

I have the great chance to immerse myself into a different culture and gain a better understanding of the world around me.

This would allow me to have a greater appreciation of my own life in comparison to that of others in third world countries.

I have approach some schools regarding non- school uniform days and in return for any support offered to me said I will go along and do an assembly with their pupils about what it is I am doing and where I am going, when I return I have said I will come back in and let the pupils know about everything I did and what it was like in Ghana.  

My aim is to spread the word and let children and young people know that if they work hard in school they can achieve good things, regardless of their background."
