Our Christian Value for September is 'Friendship'

Mrs Brandrick's Tanzanian Adventure February 2015

I had an amazing time visiting our partner school and a lot of other schools on my visit this year.
Nganana Primary School gave me a great welcome with the whole school taking part in a singing and dancing display.
I was very fortunate to be able to teach the children for a couple of days - very different to Leintwardine! There were very large classes, very few resources but lots of keen children trying their best and lots of smiles.
The children loved the letter we had written and spent a long time composing their replies.
The whole experience was joyful as well as humbling. It really made me reflect on just how fortunate we are and how much we take for granted.
We are very much looking forward to welcoming Immaculate Ceasar from Nganana School in June when she visits Herefordshire with a group of Tanzanian teachers.
