School Links with Rwanda

In today’s world, it’s vital that young citizens know their place in the world – teaching them about global issues is imperative. The British Council, Connecting Classrooms, is specifically designed to establish long-term partnerships between schools in the UK and more than 60 other countries worldwide, helping to create culturally inclusive classrooms.


Every year we give money to fund a school in Rwanda as part of the Birmingham Catholic Archdiocese.


Through the British Council, we have now been linked with our very own school in Rwanda.  It is a primary and high school and the children are learning English as part of their curriculum. 


Our Y5 class have teamed up with a similar aged class there and have become pen-pals.


We can't wait to receive replies to our recent letter and build on this new relationship.

Dear School leaders, staff & children at OLSK!
Attached is a video from Vital, he is a former student sponsored by Catholic Primary Partnership and he has just got a scholarship to do a Master's degree at Manchester University in Construction Project Management.
He has done this short video to thank us all for our support and generosity!
