Guildford School Students Link with Lutengo United School in Mukono, Uganda

Two staff members from a school in Mukono, Uganda, visited Guildford to collect sports equipment and books donated for their school library.

Meanwhile, two members of staff from St Peter's, Guildford - Amanda Alkema and Anne Chong-Seng - applied to the British Council for the Connecting Classrooms grant.

Amanda and Anne travelled to Mukono to spend five days working with staff and students in their specialist areas of economics and maths.

Some classes at Lutengo School had fifty students of mixed ages. They have virtually no access to textbooks," Amanda said.

Students have to pump their water every day for drinking and washing.

The Headteacher of Lutengo United Secondary School, Edward Kaweesi, and English teacher Babirye Samalie, visited St Peter's in Guildford and took more than 80kg of books back with them for the school.

St Peter's has a plan to launch a water harvesting and chicken farm project for Lutengo School.
