Moldova 2007

9 - 17 July 2007

For the last four years a group of Abingdon sixth formers has visited Moldova in Eastern Europe to help run summer camps for Moldovan children with the charity Agape. This year it was decided that the school would fund a visit to the UK for a group from Moldova of 14 young people and 6 adults (some teachers and some Agape workers). The group stayed in the boarding accommodation of Waste Court and were given lessons in English, DT, chemistry, economics and photography by members of Abingdon School staff. They also enjoyed a mystery trail round Abingdon town and visits to the White Horse Hill, Oxford and London accompanied by Abingdon pupils. Highlights of the London visit included seeing the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace and a flight on the London Eye. The group also prepared an evening presentation in the Amey Theatre at which the audience were able to find out more about Moldova and the work of Agape, and also see (and even join in with!) some traditional Moldovan dancing.

The trip was a huge success and made a big impact on both the visitors and those Abingdonians who spent time with them - we are already planning next year's trip when a group from Abingdon will return to Moldova to help run a summer camp at Agape's Community Centre in Ialoveni.
