What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

This is a school for missionary children which serves WEC and other mission families in Senegal, Gambia, Guinea Bissau, Ivory Coast. The school is based on the English and Welsh National curriculum, therefore the teaching is done in English. There is a branch for students to follow their studies in German following the Swiss curriculum (Zurich Canton). This is a boarding school although families that live close enough to the school can also weekly board or day pupil their children.
This is the best school in the world where the children learn, live and develop in a Christian environment. The staff are committed to the children and not to their own career advancement, the facilities are fine, and getting better every year. The school is located in a rural area but 50km from the capital city, Dakar, with all its advantages. We really need to have staff that will complete a full academic year so that we have continuity within our timetable and so that we can minimize the disruption for the children. The school year starts in August and goes through until mid July. Staff are on volunteer missionary terms, we live as a community and see God doing wonders in our personal lives and in the life of the school. See what God wants to do in you and through you by taking the plunge and checking us out!!!
