Our school is now working with PONT ( Partnerships Overseas Networking Trust) in order to to build a new model of development based on direct personal relationships between communities our school community and Uganda.
The main purpose of the partnership is to create friendship links between schools and to:
- Extend our pupils and staff’s views of the world, embracing the concept of global citizenship.
- Enable our pupils to learn about and respect one another’s cultural differences by sharing of ideas and experiences.
- Enable intercultural dialogue, increased knowledge of one another’s societies and enhance our schools curriculums
We now have a partner school in Uganda and pupils have already begun to share information photographs and experiences with them. Our pupils are always happy to receive parcels from Uganda and through this work and our curriculum have enhanced their knowledge and understanding about the life of a child in Africa.
