Visit to Nepal

In October 2017 a small group travelled to Nepal in a self-funded trip to visit the school and to commemorate the life of Kevin Fossey. Here’s their story:

For a number of years, the School of Education has supported a small school in a rural village in Nepal. Kevin Fossey, a senior lecturer and former head teacher, who sadly passed away in 2016, initiated the project. As friends and colleagues we wanted to take the opportunity to see the school but to also make a fitting tribute for Kevin.

We spent the first few days in Kathmandu. The city is difficult to describe –it is vibrant, polluted, overcrowded, busy, spiritual and exceptionally interesting.

We went shopping with the outgoing head teacher and her colleague to purchase the following items for the school:

  • Miscellaneous arts, crafts, stationery and other class resources/games

  • Material for children’s aprons
  • Speaker/PA system

May update

We are absolutely delighted to report that the repairs and refurbishments to the school are now complete. Following the earthquake, we provided large tents (erected in the playground) to ensure that essential activities could be sustained whilst the building work took place. 

These images of the children enjoying their new accommodation are both joyful and inspiring. This has been made possible by so many generous donations  and we are incredibly grateful for the support that was given.


Malagiri Christmas Fayre

A huge thanks to all that came and supported this year’s Malagiri Christmas fayre yesterday at the Falmer campus.

Between 12-2pm, the Checkland atrium was buzzing with the buying of cakes, the raffling of prizes and the brilliantly Christmassy beginnings of the festive season. In two hours we raised about £1000 for the Malagiri school through the generosity of Fayre goers! Thank you for giving. Continue reading
