A life without education is like a tree without fruit

By 24th February 2020news

Two years ago Vitalis planted some seemingly nondescript plants at the bottom of the playing field.

We now have an orchard.

Pineapples, paw paws, guavas, bananas, passionfruit and avocados are about to be harvested. The paw paws especially have grown like balloons; they are so heavy it is a wonder they remain attached to the branch.

The fruit will be the centrepiece of the new breakfast menu at Shalom Academy. Many of our pupils come to school on an empty stomach, so this fruit will go some way to filling the void and helping them focus on morning studies.
