On April 10th 2014 three teachers, one member of the Parents’ Council and nine students will travel to Zambia to take part in the Zambia Immersion project called “The Twalabuka Project”. This involves the construction of six houses for teachers at the Twalabuka School. Most of the school teachers live miles from the location to of the school and have to walk miles to get there. During the rainy season the roads become almost impossible to navigate, because of this the teachers cannot make it to the school. The pupils would then have to go a day or even more without any lessons. When the Twalabuka Project is complete the teachers will be living on site and less school hours will be lost. The project will also include the development of solar panels as there is no electricity and a well to cater for the absence of running water. It is envisaged that the well and the solar panels will service the needs of both the new teacher accommodation and the school itself.

Tipperary U 21s Development squad will play Kilkenny U 21s  Development squadin St. John’s Park on Sunday February 23rd at 11 am to raise funds for this project.

this is the third year running that this fundraiser has taken place with the score at one apiece.

The match precedes the top Allianz  National Hurling League match in Nowlan Park. We would appreciate a healthy attendance for this attractive fixture involving 2 teams who usually have a major shout as to where provincial and national titles end up each year. The CBS Zambia Immersion Committee would like to thank both Managers TJ Connolly(Tipperary) and Brian Ryan (Kilkenny), O’Loughlin Gaels for the use of their facilities and referee Eamon Mansfield and his officials for making this match possible.
