NEW SCHOOL LINK
ST. MARY’S, BENGA PARISH, MALAWI, EAST AFRICA
St. Mary’s in Claughton-on-Brock is now a link school with St. Mary’s School in Benga, Malawi in East Africa! As part of personal development of children and culture capital, we have made links with another St. Mary’s! Although our schools have the same name they are very different. In the Autumn Term, 2021 – we set up our first meeting. The children prepared questions to see what life is like in East Africa.
It was a wonderful exchange of interests, similarities and differences. The children were left buzzing with enthusiasms to link with there new Zoom friends in Malawi. The relationship will branch across our curriculum in school, and will allow children to develop skills of consideration, respect and care and compassion for all – thinking about the wider world and creating new friendships! We look forward to our next meeting and creating links across our curriculum, for both Class 1 and Class2!
