Friends for Romania
38 students accompanied by 5 members of staff travelled to Translyvania for the annual St Louis winter trip to Romania from 3rd to 10th February. St Louis pupils and staff have been working in Romania for the last 25 years and provide much needed support and assistance to various children's homes, school's and orphanages in the Brasov area. Under the leadership of Mr Marquess and with the help of three local assistants, the staff and students enjoyed spending time with children and young adults in various places of care. The incredible fundraising efforts of the Lower Sixth students ensured each centre in the Brasov area was provided with much needed resources and equipment. The trip, while intense and emotional was a very rewarding and humbling experience for all involved.
