More than 20 CedarBridge students have been given a helping hand from the OBA as they prepare for a trip to the UK where they will get chance to visit colleges and universities. Nandi Outerbridge, Minister of Social Development and Sports, offered her support to the students today and has been joined by other MPs to donate funds for the trip.
Ms Outerbridge said: “On behalf of my Parliamentary colleagues, the CBA Board and staff, I offer my encouragement and support to the students . . . this trip is designed to give students exposure to institutions they may not otherwise consider and I know these students will take full advantage of this opportunity.”
The pupils will visit Sheffield Hallam University, Salford University, Xaverian College, University of Manchester, Roehampton University, London Metropolitan University, London South Bank University and University of Buckingham.
Additional visits are being arranged as well as attendance at a major university fair.
The group will arrive in the UK tomorrow and will stay until March 28.
