Today our teachers; Mrs Clarey, Mrs Broome and Mrs Price, along with Vicar Stewart returned from Kenya after visiting Soweto Academy, Soweto Juniors and Kisumu Dogo School in Kibera, Nairobi.
It has been very interesting for the children at Barlaston to see photos and hear about the very different conditions of the schools in Kibera compared to their own school.
In September 2018, our school became a pilot school for a Lichfield Diocese scheme of work investigating ways which schools could learn about mission in the world beyond the local area.
We began working with Feed the Hungry UK and our church to forge links with The Soweto Academy, a school in Kibera, Nairobi.
Further details of our visit will be added soon...
