PENKRIDGE youngsters were given a flavour of Africa as a headteacher from a school in Kenya arrived to spend the week.
Madam Esnas travelled by plane for the first time to drop in at St Michael’s CE First School.
She is the head of Malinda Primary School in Kenya, where youngsters have no running hot water or electricity. She brought food diaries from her pupils so they could compare diets and found out all about life in Penkridge.
The two schools have been working together for some time and St Michael’s head Jayne Grundy has visited Malinda.
She said: “My first visit was to start the link and now the link with our schools is very strong.
"St Michael’s and Malinda Primary children are benefitting greatly as it helps them challenge stereotyping, respect and value others while working together to combat injustice and discrimination so that all the children become active global citizens.”
