WHEN Sir John Deane’s College student Bethany Clewes finishes her A-levels, there’ll be no time for relaxing.
Because the 17-year-old from Winsford will be swapping studying for a South American adventure.
Beth, who lives on Over Hall Drive, has been selected to teach English classes in a Peruvian orphanage as part of an international project run by the Project Trust, one of the UK’s longest-established gap year organisations.
“I’m really looking forward to it. The big challenge is having to learn Spanish,” said Beth, who will be spending a year in Peru.
Beth is currently studying A-Level psychology, law and performance arts at SJD’s, hopes to study drama at university on her return to Britain.
She’s also a member of the United Reformed Church in Winsford, and helps out with the Over Brownies.
She will be leaving for Peru in August 2009 and is now busy raising the £4,660 needed for the trip. Among the events planned are a performance night at SJD’s, a “pamper night” and a film evening.
Anyone who wants to sponsor her can contact SJD’s on 01606 46011, or donate online at www.justgiving.com/bethanyclewes.
