In October 2012, Immanuel school began its exciting partnership with Sokoine Primary school in Dodoma, Tanzania. Our Headteacher Mr Robinson and a number of other teachers from the South Lambeth School Partnership flew out to Tanzania on a trip sponsored by the British Council, to develop our school’s awareness of global citizenship and to share ideas about strategies for teaching and learning. He was overwhelmed by their friendliness, happiness and very impressed with their mental maths skills and beautiful singing voices.

In June 2013, we were pleased to welcome Jesca, who inspired children in their learning by leading teaching sessions and playing an active role in the life of the school during their ten day stay. They were very interested in our school council and to see how we developed pupil voice across the school.

Our partnership continues to grow from strength to strength and has seen Miss Cleveland visit Tanzania in October 2013 and another Tanzanian teacher named Samson visit Immanuel and St Andrew School in June 2014. Tanzania has now become a feature of our school curriculum and has contributed to good outcomes within the classrooms of the school. We look forward to strengthening these links in the months and years ahead.
