Tanzania

Granton Primary School is lucky enough to have been partnered with Chamwino Primary School in Dodoma, Tanzania for the past 4 years and a number of adults, including Miss Cooper, Miss Lee, Michelle and Sandra Townsend, have all been fortunate enough to spend time teaching out there. 

 It was clear that through our 4 year partnership, Chamwino has taken on board lots of our ideas in their own school, including implementing a Green Team, School Council and Buddies just like we have at Granton.

In addition, we have enjoyed our partnership and have used a number of the ideas seen at Chamwino to support our understanding of the world around us.  Examples of how our partnership with Chamwino in Tanzania have supported our learning include:

  • Having recycling and water projects as the focus for our 'Environment' theme in previous years. 

If you would like to find out more about what Chamwino is like, have a look at the photos from Miss Cooper's trip in October 2013.

Lots of you kept up with Miss Cooper's teaching and travelling adventures on her blog:
