- Teachers visit Bo
Three teacher visitors had their first time experience of working with their partner schools in Bo. They taught classes of 60 pupils or more and ran workshops for their brother and sister teachers in Bo. As always this was a period of hard work but all agreed that it was very moving and would jump at the opportunity to repeat the experience. They were given a warm welcome and made many friends. You can see their video of the experience.AGM for 2017
We have had a busy and productive year with activities ramping up again as Sierra Leone recovered from the Ebola outbreak.
We and our distinguished guests heard about reciprocal visits by teachers, the celebrations for the Day of the African Child, the waste project in Bo, a workshop on planning, our medical link and the refurbishment of the Bo OWL Centre.Day of the African Child in Leamington 2017
The Day of the African Child was about celebration and learning. It started with a grand parade when pupils from fifteen schools trooped round the field at Lillington Primary School with banners proclaiming their links with schools in Bo, Sierra Leone, as part of the education programme of One World Link. They then did drumming, dancing, singing, sports, drama and story-telling, all on a Sierra Leonean theme.
