Students at ACS Egham recently performed in a charity fundraising concert for the school�s Project Nepal 2015 trip.

Project Nepal is a five-year commitment that ACS International Schools has made, to help improve the living conditions and education of disadvantaged communities in the eastern corner of the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal.

Project Nepal 2015 will see 38 students from grades nine to 11, aged 14 to 17, travel to Shree Mahendra, Nepal. Students will build relationships with the local community, working with laborers to help restore the Shree Mahendra Secondary School.

Following months of practice and auditioning for the concert, over 130 Lower School students, aged five to nine, took to the stage to perform to an audience of family, friends and staff. Raising over �300 to help fund the project, highlights of the concert included piano solos and dance duos.

Mags Grace, Lower School music teacher, commented:

�The Project Nepal Concert was a great opportunity for students to showcase their musical talents and take part in fundraising for such a great cause. After months of preparation their hard work paid off and the event was thoroughly enjoyed by all.�
