Kolkata Immersion Experience
In September 2013, because of the unrest in Nairobi, Kenya, the Immersion Experience due to take place in October 2013 was cancelled for safety reasons. After a lot of research, Ms. Barrett set up a link with Loreto Day School, Sealdah, Kolkata, India for a visit in February 2014. The students and teachers helped the street children who live in Loreto Sealdah with their homework and played with them. At the weekends, as part of the Loreto Sealdah Outreach Programme, the group helped teach English and Maths to poor children from rural areas near Kolkata.
