A Tanzanian school headteacher has shared experiences of life in Africa with Queenswood School pupils.

Jackson Lucas Mwenula, of Sunray School in Tanzania, was introduced to pupils on Monday and will stay all week as part of a special exchange partnership.

He spoke of life in Africa as children presented their ‘journey’ themed work which compares the kind of things they see on their trip to school.

Whilst here, he will take part in the school’s World Book Day event on Friday, will visit the interactive exhibition presented by the international Bible students at Central Methodist Church and be there for visitors to meet at the school’s open day, also on Friday.

Head Julie Tanner said: “It’s just massive, it makes learning so real and adds so much to the curriculum in such a fun way. They’re learning so much about each other.”
