The whole school danced their socks off on Friday for the BIG BRW BOOGIE for BUNKPURUGU!  There was excitement in the air as we gathered for a assembly to look back at why we started the Building Hope Project in the first place.  Two years ago we embarked on an aspirational project to build a school for the children in a remote village called Bunkpurugu, in Ghana.  During the assembly, we were reminded of the poor state of the current school and we watched a virtual tour of the new school with joy in our hearts.

In June 2018, I was lucky enough to visit the village to see the progress of the build and meet the children there.  The overwhelming emotion was that was gratitude and hope.  The whole community are so thankful at the efforts of our schools in fundraising to ensure the school is built.  It’s not just a new building for the children, but hope of a better future for all.

So with all this in mind and wearing our weirdest, wackiest and most wonderful dance-inspired outfits, we geared up for an afternoon of non-stop BOOGIE-ING for BUNKPURUGU!  It was hot, sweaty and physically tough but the whole school did themselves proud and showed true determination to complete the event with smiles on their faces…and all for the children of Bunkpurugu.
