To celebrate our new partnership with Zion Education Centre in Rwanda, the whole school participated in a Rwandan experience day.
To start they day we all walked a mile to mimic the children in Rwanda having to walk to school. Every class then carried bucket of water in teams of 2-4 to show the difficulty Rwandan people face when having to collect water from a central village tap half a mile away.
After lunch, every child tried a small sample of rice and kidney beans - an example of what Rwandan people have to eat daily in Rwanda. Every class also made their own key hole gardens to show the shape of the vegetable beds used in Rwanda. For more information about this, please visit the Wildlife club page, who are building a large version of a key hole garden.
Throughout the rest of the day, the children learned about Rwandan culture, the genocide, their gorillas, daily life and art work. They also brought in some beautiful African costumes, objects, statues and instruments to show their peers.
