Zambia here we come!

After months and months of fundraising and planning Kingsmead’s 12 Zambian Exchange Programme students set off on their journey to Kitwe on Monday 10th July. Accompanied by teachers Mr Thompson, Mr Dunnett, Miss Fleming and Miss Honour, the group will spend just over two weeks as guests of their Zambian families.
