    Friendship across continents

    An exciting new chapter in a story of friendship across continents as teachers from Malosa School in Malawi visit Bishop Ramsey.

     

    On Wednesday 19th November, 2014,  Nelson Mwale, Howard Nasoro and Macpherson Ndawala touched down at Heathrow to open a new chapter in the relationship between Bishop Ramsey Church of England School and Malosa School in Malawi.

    The three Malawian teachers were beginning a week long visit to the school which would give them the opportunity to see at first hand learning, teaching and educational leadership in a leading British school.  The aim of the visit, which was funded partly by donations and partly by a grant from the British Council, was to help the Malawian school learn at first hand about pedagogy and leadership from a successful English school.

    Nelson Mwale, the Headteacher of Malosa, said “We were very impressed by the strong sense of collaboration and shared values which we saw at Bishop Ramsey.  There are many things that we will try and incorporate into our work at Malosa Secondary School”.

    Bishop Ramsey Headteacher, Andrew Wilcock, said: “Bishop Ramsey School and Malosa Secondary School have been working in partnership over many years.  Parties of Sixth Form students from Bishop Ramsey have been visiting Malosa since 2007 with another visit this coming summer.  These visits have often had a profound effect on the young people taking part in them.  Both schools are committed to developing their partnership which has already brought great benefits to both.”
