African adventure

A group of 16 staff and students from Bridgnorth Endowed School (BES) visited Umonga Secondary School in Tanzania earlier this year as part of an ongoing educational partnership between the schools. BES have been working with the African school for six years and this latest trip’s objectives included forming links between St Leonard’s primary school in Bridgnorth and Kaloleni primary school – which is on the same site as Umonga.

BES’ outgoing head Mr Loveday said, “Our objectives were fulfilled beyond my expectations and I’m particularly pleased with the developing relationship between staff and students at St Leonard’s and Kaloleni. The students and parents of Bridgnorth Endowed and St Leonard’s will be supporting the needy students in this area of Tanzania’s capital city throughout their educational journey. I’d also like to mention the Bridgnorth Tanzania project and Derek Cole, who is always keen to know what we are doing and help with our Swahili.”
