  • Mr Cresswell in Tanzania!

    Published 01/10/19



    At the bottom of this page there are some pictures of Kizuiani Primary School in Bagamoyo, Tanzania. This is the school Mr Cresswell will be visiting and blogging about when he visits during the w/b 12th October 2019. You can follow Mr Cresswell's blog (which will also have posts from headteachers visiting other schools in Bagamoyo) by clicking here.

    Mr Cresswell's challenge:

    Can you learn some simple phrases in Swahili? You can use them when the teachers from Tanzania visit Crossdale next year! Click here

    Background to the visit

    On the 12th October Mr Cresswell is setting off to Tanzania with other headteachers from Equals Trust schools as part of a funded British Council project called ‘Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning’. In Tanzania, he will be sharing stories that children at Crossdale have created using ‘Stories of a Lifetime’ as inspiration – this website focuses on helping students to connect with their heritage and culture through storytelling. Each headteacher visiting Tanzania has been allocated a school in Bagamoyo to spend a week in, learning about Tanzanian culture and their education system. Headteachers from Tanzania will visit Keyworth next year and staff at Crossdale  will receive training from the British Council that focuses on Sustainable Development Goals.

    Our plan is that this initial visit to Tanzania provides a springboard for further work in our school that will give our children an age appropriate introduction to global issues that will affect them as they get older. Mr Cresswell will be writing a blog during his time away for children, staff and adults to follow.

    Thank you all for another fantastic Macmillan Coffee Morning at Crossdale - we've raised over £300 so far and were once again blown away with our cake competition entries!

    Huge well done to Mrs Gemma Louch, Mrs Luz Ramos Cabrera and one of our ex-pupils Holly W who were named as our star bakers, and blew Mr Cresswell's socks off with their creativity and chocolatey taste!

    We've changed lives thanks to you all!
