- Sixth Form
Wednesday 23 March 2011
On Thursday 17 March, Moira House Girls School welcomed 6 visitors from Ethiopia and Nigeria, all of whom are educational professionals in their own countries.
The aim of their visit was to experience British educational practices and to enjoy many cultural aspects of our local area. They visited Moira House’s Junior School and planted two trees in the new outdoor Environmental Studies area. Girls from Year 5 also performed an African playground song they had learnt especially for this event.
The visit has been initiated and funded by the British Council with three local schools participating: Cradle Hill School, Seaford Head Community College and Moira House Girls School.
In the afternoon, the visitors enjoyed a Cultural Show at Moira House, with performances by pupils from all three Schools.
Linda Young, Head of the Junior School at Moira House Girls School, said: “The project called “Connecting Classrooms” is designed to build lasting and collaborative relationships between schools in the UK and others around the world and has been very successful. It has been a great opportunity to share experiences and bring local and global educational communities together.”
