The school has established a cultural and educational link with St. Augustine’s Primary School in Sakina, Arusha, Tanzania through a local Derby organisation called ‘Project Arusha’. The school has organised ‘Arusha Day’ fundraising activities and has so far, raised money through cake sales and other events, providing needed items such as school furniture, mosquito nets, ICT equipment, clothing, school resources and child sponsorship. The children have become pen pals. The next stage is to use the donated ICT equipment to have Skype contact, when this is set up sufficiently in Sakina.
We host guests from the community in Sakina connected to the school to attend our Prize Giving Ceremony at the end of the school year. We intend to develop this relationship, including raising money to support their school and its needs. As a community we do all we can to support St. Augustine’s. However it is our firm belief that our children can learn a huge amount through their interaction with the delightful children in Sakina.
