I've been told that the 3 Peaks Challenge is 60% mental..... I think it may be in fact 100% totally insane but.......In July 2016, 24 pupils from Haberdashers' Monmouth School for Girls and 18 boys from Monmouth School will be spending a month in the Zanskar area of India, accompanied by 6 members of staff. As part of the expedition, the group will spend a week acclimatising in the village of Burua, working at Upper School which was founded in 1997 by HMSG's Headmistress, Caroline Pascoe (who is also leading the expedition). We will be teaching, painting, plastering and carrying general repairs at the school. Since its foundation, Upper Valley School has grown from having 6 children aged 5 to now having 142 children aged between 3 and 17. The facilities have grown from one room to a facility of 8 classrooms.
After time in Burua the expedition will undertake a 2 week high altitude trek in the Himalayan foothills.
To help raise much needed funds for Upper Vally School, 5 members of staff from HMSG and Monmouth School (Caroline Pascoe, Kate Potts, Gerry Stentiford, Rob Picken and Owen Williams) will be aiming to complete the National 3 Peaks Challenge (Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon) in 24 Hours from 4pm on Sunday 29 May and finishing by 4pm on Monday 30 May.
Please sponsor us in this mad dash so we can raise as much money as we can for Upper Valley School, Burua.
