At Huntley we have a very special friendship with a school in Kenya called Maina Primary School. The school have approximately 1000 children from the ages of 4 to 14 that all live in the local slum village. In July 2015 Rufus Mwangi the head teacher from Maina Primary visited us. He spent 2 weeks at school with us enjoying lessons, clubs, worship and our summer performance! We learnt so much from him and really enjoyed his company in class.
In October 2015 Mrs Goulding and Miss Ingram were very fortunate to visit Rufus at his school in Kenya. They had a fantastic time learning about the lives of the children, their families and their teachers! They shared gifts we sent and showed them lots of video messages, songs and dances from all of us at school on the ipad. On their return we celebrated with a Kenya week at school and learnt so much from photographs and experiences they had enjoyed.
Keep up to date with our blog to see how our special friendship with Maina is growing.
Look out for news from Serah, a Maina pupil we are sponsoring to attend secondary school.
