Nieuws uit Zimbabwe
King George VI Memorial school in Zimbabwe heeft een scholenband met het Jonghelinckshof, Antwerp. De twee scholen startten vorig jaar hun samenwerking, en ontmoetten elkaar voor het eerst in september. King George stuurde ons een nieuwsbrief met nieuwtjes van hun kant...
"We wanted to keep you updated about the life here in King George VI Memorial School (Zimbabwe). Our school term began on the 10th of January 2012. We welcomed our 39 members of staff to the new year. The enrolment stands at 345 pupils. We are an inclusive school for non-disabled, disabled and learning disabled children. The school offers both primary from Early Childhood Development to grade 7, and secondary school from form 1 to form 4, in both we offer deaf education as well.
We started working on the SchoolLinks project with Jonghelinckshof, Antwerp, through Internet and a pen pal system. We are doing this with the progress class, which is a class made up of children with learning difficulties.
Not only the pupils, but also the senior teachers are learning how to work with the computer and the Internet. They have received their own e-mail address, and in the near future they will start communicating with their pen pals in Jonghelinckshof.
On Thursday 29th March we will have our culture day. Everybody will be dressed in traditional African clothing; there will be typical African food, dances and so much more. It’s a way to end our first term in style.
In the next term, we will have visitors from Jonghelinckshof. Two speech therapist will visit us for two weeks. So the exchange of experience and the strengthening between our schools will go on. The preparations are underway..."
