South Africa and Zimbabwe
Since 2009 Hendon has been working in partnership to establish a link with a school in Southern Africa. With the support of AfriTwin we have developed a partnership with Zwaanswyk School, Cape Town South Africa and Mufakose2 High School, Harare ,Zimbabwe.
Over the last 4 years; 8 members of staff and 18 students have been on exchange trips to both schools. We have also welcomed 5 teachers and 2 students to Hendon School. Our links have been used to enrich the Humanities and Photography curriculum. The schools are also able to blog each other, staff share curriculum information and students are able to discuss life in their respective countries.
Currently the schools are working on a photography competition entitled “Together” we will be displaying the winners from each school on the website.
It is planned that over the next year the three schools will organise an Afritwin day celebrating the culture of each country. We will share photographs and videos and these will be placed on the website.
