Since 2007, the Westminster Group has assisted the Rotary Club of Banbury in their community work that they carry out in Sierra Leone.
This includes building new schools, extending existing schools, providing school uniforms, implementing water harvesting systems and solar panels, and through the Ebola and COVID pandemics providing essential food supplies.
The latest school has just been completed and is located at Kono Town. In recognition of the support given by the Westminster Group, it is named “Westminster Community Secondary School”.
The school consists of two classrooms, an office, staff room and a five-cubicle toilet block. The concrete foundations have been laid for the next phase, which include another two classrooms.
Year 7 and year 8 pupils are now enrolling for the new term.
