Working With and Learning From
Strong links have been forged between schools in the Leeds Diocese and Tanzanian schools in Mara Diocese. Our school is at the forefront of this and an ambassador for the project given Mr. Walkers recent visit, this is a partnership that will go from strength to strength and is highly valued by the school.
Over time, schools have helped communities in Mara. This support has included the digging of wells, building of classrooms, provision of resources and desks etc. But it is not just about fundraising. Crucially, for the children, it is about learning about other cultures, making friends across the miles and learning key Christian values. From the visit, many opportunities to learn from the Tanzanian schools have been identified including creativity within the curriculum.
As well as the mutual benefits of the international links with our Tanzania friends, a close network has established across local schools who are also engaged and committed to the project.
Opportunities to enhance the curriculum through this partnership are threaded throughout long term curriculum plans.
This link is closely aligned to our vision, particularly in developing the spirit:
Growth in MIND:
- Learners educate, communicate and build enduring relationships with internal and external communities.
- A broad and balanced curriculum is promoted.
Growth in BODY:
- Learners are encouraged to celebrate the wonderful variety of ways to be human.
- Human identity in all its forms is celebrated ensuring dignity and respect.
- Learners understand that we are all created equally in God’s image.
- Learners show courageous advocacy, driving ethical decisions affirming what is right.
- Learners are supported to be the change they want to see in the world.
- Learners offer radical hospitality and are welcoming to all.
- Learners challenge injustice and are committed to justice.
- Learners become agents of change.
- Character development impacts on wider society enabling people to flourish together.
Proud of our partnership with Mshikamano (Solidarity) Primary School - Bega Kwa Bega (Shoulder to Shoulder)
