We are beginning a new international link with a school in Mozambique. This link is funded by the British Council and will initially involve two members of staff travelling to our partner school in February 2018. Following this visit the school with develop projects with the children in both schools.
As our project with Tanzania involved health and fitness we organised World Cup Football matches in each country. The games in June were played between the schools that have a link with Tanzania and the games in October were played by the partner schools in Tanzania and were organised by staff from the UK. Banners were made in each country and the children had a fantastic time.
Our Partner School In Tanzania
The focus for the work on this visit was health and fitness.
Mr Goodluck Malisa visited our school in June 2014 from the Kilimanjaro area of Tanzania. He is the headteacher of our partner school. During his visit he observed lessons and took part in teaching activities. He had an opportunity to look around the area and find out about our school and local community. The school, which is called Lyakombila Primary School, has 260 pupils and is located on Mount Kilamanjaro. The school is very different to ours, it has no electricity or water and has a very small wooden kitchen. The children are taught many of the subjects that we teach in Copeland Road and they learn English. Over the months and years we hope to develop our link and learn more about our partner school, its local environment and children.
Our partner school in Tanzania is near to a town called Moshi and is in the foothills of Mount Kilamanjaro. The school is called Lyakombila Primary School. They have about 260 pupils and 7 staff. Children in the school are taught lessons in Swahili but they also learn English. The subjects they learn are very similar to our curriculum. The area around the school grows coffee and bananas.
