Leweston’s connection with Jana Jyoti School in Nepal started over thirty years ago when, then member of staff, Liz Rutter came across the school whilst in the country. Since then, Leweston’s pupils have carried out events to raise funds for the school and have been on trips to visit. A number of former pupils have also spent their gap years working at Jana Jyoti.
Our students’ tuck shop proceeds have been collected and we are delighted that they have sponsored Ashish, a former Jana Jyoti student, through University in Nepal.
Our Year 10 and 11 students will be flying out this October and are excited to learn about the developments since our relationship started and meet some of the Jana Jyoti students.
