Pupils head to Pakistan

Feb 18 2004

By The Evening Chronicle


Students are preparing to become ambassadors for Britain, thanks to success in a competition to win a trip to Pakistan.

Five pupils from Ponteland Community High School will set off in April on a 10-day expedition as part of a project to counteract Pakistan's image as a country plagued by terrorism.

The school is one of several in the UK which will be sending students to Pakistan after impressing judges with their work in this year's annual Experience Pakistan Project, launched in 2001.

Year 10 geography students Charles Dickinson, Michael Skelly, Martin Spurr, Philip Overbury and David Hindle researched diversity and unity in Pakistan.

Their trip starts on April 1 and takes in Islamabad and the Khyber Pass.
