As well as the normal blogging and information exchanges that take place between our twinned schools, there are also some special projects that have been devised to further enhance either the conservation or cultural messages the Queen Elizabeth Parks Project are keen to emphasise .
Led by local artist Philippa Adams, Clanfield Junior School involved pupils, teachers and parents in creating a giant mosaic celebrating their connection with Bukorwe Primary School.Led by local artist Philippa Adams, Clanfield Junior School involved pupils, teachers and parents in creating a giant mosaic celebrating their connection with Bukorwe Primary School.
The mosaic is based on a series of photographs taken by Deputy Head Rebecca Buckle which show pupils from Clanfield and Bukorwe schools enjoying parachute games.
The joy on the children's faces graphically illustrates that children are the same the world over.
Teachers Adam Stanley of Liss Junior School and Yowasi Byaruhanga of Kafuro Primary school worked with the Tag Rugby Trust to create the Conservation Cup.
They use sport as a way of engaging young people in Wildlife.
Eight teams representing seven schools battled to become the champions of wildlife and win the conservation cup.
Between matches there was the opportunity to meet staff from the Queen Elizabeth National Park and hear about the work they undertake in managing wildlife.
The conservation cup is to become annual event with the hope that even more local schools will want to take part.
Although this is not a QEPP Project, Katunguru Primary School, one of our 'Twinned' schools have thrown themselves into this wonderful environmental initiative.
Activities have included clean ups, rubbish sculptures and health programmes.
