A STUDENT is planning to spend her gap year teaching in a primary school in Honduras.

Jocelyn Strawson, 17, who studies at Kesteven and Grantham Girls’ School, was chosen to take part in the volunteer scheme run by Project Trust after a rigorous selection process on the Isle of Coll.

After finishing school next year Jocelyn will fly out to the Central American country to live and work in the community for 12 months.

She said: “Since education is the key to relieving poverty, by passing on my skills, knowledge, love and encouragement I hope to make a positive difference to the life of these Honduran children who have had a less fortunate upbringing than myself.”

Jocelyn will spend the next year raising the £5,400 needed to support her trip.
