Family visit makes school newsletter


The Natstat family from Berkshire, England is heading to Cambodia and they have kindly requested donations of clothes and exercise books to take on their trip. This adventure has made their school newsletter this week!! THANK YOU TO THE NATSTAT and The Abbey School families & we wish you well on your adventure…

As a school we are donating all the exercise books that we will not be using. Any clothing would be greatly appreciated by this charity. They would like any school uniform that your daughter has grown out of or any spare ‘old style uniform’ that your children are no longer wearing. They will be grateful for any clothing though, not just uniforms. These donations will be put to very good use. Please bring anything you have to donate into school by Tuesday morning.”

  • The children are just delightful and it was a pleasure to work with such dedicated staff. This trip has been busy but very rewarding….. I am learning so much more about this incredible country and all its difficulties. I can see why so many people are so passionate about Cambodia.

  • Not only do they help this new young generation learn English, which is the goal, but there are so many who are benefactors of the generosity of this group, that I am so glad I found. If you ever wonder in your life if one person can make a difference , you now know that they can.

  • I would recommend volunteering to anyone and everyone, particularly those who love kids, enjoy a challenge and hope for a holiday that they’ll never forget

  • Although volunteering is a giving thing I came away from the whole experience with a sense that I had certainly gained more than I had given
