Loxley C of E Community Primary School has established a link with Common Faith Educational Complex, Kumasi, Ghana, West Africa.
This African school began its life under a tree in the village, in the hopes of providing a quality education for children in the local community. The school now has a building and over 150 children who relish the opportunity to attend to receive an education.
Miss Dickens (our Acorn Class Teacher on Thursdays and Fridays) visited this school as volunteer teachers to help the children to learn about basic health and hygiene, and to help the teachers to learn some new teaching strategies. Miss Dickens has now helped to establish a penpal link between Common Faith Educational Complex, Kumasi, and our own school in order to help our Loxley children to learn about the lives of children living in other parts of our world.
Covid19 Update - October, 2020
Back in March, our Loxley pupils excitedly wrote their first letters to their Ghanaian penpals. A lot has happened in the world since then meaning that sadly, as of yet, our penpals have been unable to reply. They have, however, sent us the update below which was shared with the children in school in October...
A Christmas Exchange
In early December 2019, Loxley pupils wrote some very special prayers and Christmas wishes for their new Ghanaian friends. We also sent a parcel containing a Christmas pencil gift for each child in our international link school.
The whole Loxley school family was very excited when the Common Faith Educational Complex pupils sent them photographs and video messages showing the joy they felt at receiving our prayers and well wishes! We hope this be just the start of an exciting journey of friendship and learning.
Thank you to Miss Dickens for setting this up for us and do keep checking back here for further updates.
