This Friday our students are going to kick start a campaign aiming to raise £3,000 for Cooperative Orthotic and Prosthetic Enterprise (COPE). Mr Adam Tarbox - our Engagement and Learning Mentor has witnessed the support which COPE provides in Laos and now wishes to support them as much as he can.
The overarching goal of Cooperative Orthotic and Prosthetic Enterprise (COPE) is to ensure that people with physical disabilities have local, free access to a quality, nationally-managed rehabilitation service. Throughout the last decade, COPE has remained the only charity organization in Laos PDR to offer ongoing support to the Government of Laos (GOL) P&O department. This support has included material and equipment and important technical capacity building and training of GOL prosthetic and orthotic technicians, physiotherapists and occupational therapists.
During this Friday, there will be plenty to do and watch. Our Student Leadership Team has organised a Non-school uniform day and one of the activities will be Soak a Teacher.
Please come ready, help us raise as much as we can and most importantly - have fun!2
