1. Kasungu-Answers on a Postcard?


Categories: Geography General

At the beginning of the year, I suggested that this year would be one where hopefully myself and others might enlighten ourselves more about Africa. I talked about setting up a school link and I'm really just sharing the progress I've made and trying to perhaps involve some people too. We have been linked to a school in Malawi, as I requested. It's still very early days, and haven't even got the introduction letter away yet, but we now have the name of the school, the name of the link teacher and a whole host of possible linking activities to consider. It would be nice to get pupils opinions on the kinds of things that you would want to do in partnership, and please feel free to speak to me about this or leave a comment. The school that we are linking to is situated in a place called Kasungu, which you can see on the map above. I quickly searched the internet and there is very little of note about Kasungu that is returned immediately,and I will be intrigued to learn more as our link develops. I might ask for some homework on both Malawi and Kasungu from various classes by way of slowly introducing our partner school. s4, as ever, are trying to wangle a field trip already...
