• Windsor & Maidenhead Education Department were approached asking them to investigate the possibility of arranging a “twinning” of one of the schools in the area with Mnyakongo Primary School. Within a month a school had come forward and expressed great interest. All necessary paperwork was completed and the first link was made by an exchange of letters.

Waltham St. Lawrence Primary School, Berkshire

  • A new initiative was set up by Heather Laing to collect sports equipment for the school.
  • Word went out that soft toys and educational games and puzzles were needed for the school and the collection started with a trickle and then gathered pace.
  • We heard of new building works at the school – to house the books coming from SDSU.
  • Peter requested local carpenters in Kongwa to build shelving to be installed in the new building once it is complete.
