Selby High School

Selby High School

Connecting Classrooms 2015

From the 9th to 20th Feb, as part of the Connecting Classrooms programme, four teachers from the Selby area, embarked on an exciting visit to Mongu in Zambia.

The teachers were myself: Joanne Carter-Mills Deputy Headteacher Selby High School, Caroline Haigh from Hambleton Primary School, Andrew Smith (Headteacher) from Cawood Primary school and Andrew Russell (Headteacher) from North Duffield.

Mongu is situated high above the eastern edge of the Zambezi's floodplains, it is the centre for Western Zambia and is the only large town this side of Livingstone or Lusaka.

The partnership was established three years ago and has involved staff from linked schools traveling to Zambia and teachers from schools in Mongu travelling to Selby.  The staff spent time in each other schools developing new ideas and strategies, learning from each other and working on projects which students from both partner schools would benefit from.

Selby High school is proud to be partnered with Limulunga Basic School.
