Lawford C of E Primary School

High quality learning and caring together in an encouraging Christian environment.

Our Partner School in Kenya

Kiburu Primary School - Our  Partner School in Kenya.

Kiburu Primary School is located around 120km north east of Nairobi, and is south east of Mt Kenya National Park.

Mrs Wenden and Mrs Woods visited the school during February half term 2018. 

They enjoyed meeting Mr Francis Ndwega and his staff and 1000 children! The grant was achieved through the British Council's Connecting Classrooms project where both schools carried out a critical skills programme to develop thinking and collaboration.


Miss Fairbairn had hoped to visit this year in May but this visit and the return visit of Mr Ndwega has had to be postponed.  We hope it will go ahead next September (2021).  We are working together on projects supporting sustainability.

Kiburu Primary School, Kenya

Mamponteng D.A. Primary 'A' School, in Mamponteng, is our partner school in Ghana.

There have been three reciprocal exchange visits between staff. Children and staff from both schools have benefitted enormously from the partnership.

This display at the Tendring Hundred Show (July 9th 2016) celebrated our link with our Ghanaian partnership school, Mamponteng Primary.  Children from Foundation Stage to Year 6 contributed a range of artwork based on African culture and art.
