Cultural link celebrated

PUPILS gave their visitors a musical welcome to celebrate their partnership with Silverlea Primary School in South Africa.

Children from Lostock Gralam Primary School learned the South African national anthem, which they sung at the start of each day’s worship during their visitors’ week-long stay.

The link between the school and Silverlea in Cape Town began four years ago, and this year saw the second visit to Lostock for Silverlea teacher Colleen Rinquest, accompanied by school principal Sandy Daniels.

The visit was organised by Lostock Primary teachers Linda Booth and Grace McCoy, who had visited Silverlea in February.

“This visit focused on the theme of being special and hopes and friendships,” said Mrs Booth.

“Many new friendships have been formed, and the children now have a much better understanding of how pupils live and learn in their partner school,” said Mrs Booth. “This was a memorable experience for all the staff and pupils, and South Africa is now embedded in our rich and varied curriculum.”
