Worplesdon Primary School is funding two children's schooling in Mukono

Alistair Parsons, the headteacher of Worplesdon Primary School, near Guildford, has told us that his school will be fund raising to pay the school fees of two children at Mukono Boarding School.

The school plans that each year group will fund one child in the future.

'In 2009 we were looking for an opportunity to make a partnership with a school in a different part of the world with a completely different culture and environment so our children could learn about and appreciate the differences and compare the cultures. 

Through the Guildford-Mukono link I made contact with Susan Wamala the Head of Mukono Boarding School. This was the start of an ever deepening relationship where the children have been motivated to help improve the facilities at the school, learn about the region and the lives of the children that live their and exchange letters and information. 

Every year through grants from the British Council we have been able to take part in reciprocal visits by staff from the two schools.'
