For several years Dromore High School have had links with Schools in Jandira, Uganda.  Two successful trips in March 2012 and April 2014 have allowed Sixth Form students to visit the schools and carry out projects and activities.  March 2016 and March 2018  students visited schools in Nakuru Kenya and were able to carry out projects in 3 primary schools thanks to fundraising within the local community.  Preparations are already taking place for a visit to Kenya in April 2020.
