  1. hello am an adminstrator at kigumba centre primary school in uganda.was looking through your website and i happened to learn that your global classroom projects are not different from what my school was involved in from 2001 to 2009.only that this seems to be broader in scope.our school was involved in a global curriculum exchange program me with Chader groove primary school and then later on Hillcrest primary school in Bristol UK then headed by the late Ms Norma Watson.
    we had a rich exchange of both classroom,social and culture experiences between our learners.for example our learners would exchange photos taken through out their normal daily family,academic and social life with their age mates on the other side.
    our learners also exchanged items they had sewn,moulded,curved,crafted,drawn,texts.
    our last exchange was under the theme recycling….a subject that was alien to our learners at first.this exchange was able to stir the imagination and creativity of our learners to depths we had never imagined before.we realized that despite being young,kids have imaginations and a vast vault of untapped ideas.
    Furthermore,despite being hundreds of miles away from the city center,this exchange in a way changed the attitude of our community towards education in general and girl child education in particular.,a number of primary schools sprung up and today an area that was once isolated has become a budding hub of academic institutions.
    we strongly believe the global curriculum exchange program me we were involved in had a hand in turning around our community spurring the imagination,creativeness and vigilance of our learners and community in general.
    Because we see an opportunity to enable teachers and students to share, learn and collaborate globally,its for this purpose that on behalf of our school i humbly request to become part of this global classroom plat form to raise awareness of the benefits of cross boundary learning,girls’ right to education, and building pen pal relationships.
    On behalf of Kigumba centre primary school,i pray that our submission is humbly considered.
