Ings Primary has been linked with St John’s Primary in Freetown since May 2017. St John’s is located in the Brookfield area of Freetown and is home to over 900 pupils. Our link teacher is Mrs Ethel Williams and she works closely with Mrs Longbone to ensure that the partnership continues to grow and we are aware of the Sierra Leonean culture and educational system. We work together on joint projects, such as recycling and marine pollution.
Sierra Leone visit
Mrs Longbone has just returned from Freetown. She was able to deliver some English lessons to Class One at St John's Primary. The planning focused on the 'Sustainable Development Goals', specifically 4, 14 and 15. She also got the chance to meet the High Commissioner of Sierra Leone, Mr Simon Mustard. He is originally from Hull and is hoping to visit our school in the New Year. This visit was extremely successful and was rounded off with a visit to the Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary, which was truly humbling and awe inspiring. Lots of happy memories.
