In September 2018 Pentrehafod School was privileged to become part of a cluster team in the British Council’s ‘Connecting Classrooms’ initiative. The programme has enabled us to continue to develop and maintain an equitable and sustainable partnership with Ziavonga High School in Zambia, which began in 2014.
The main aims for the exchange programme have been to raise awareness of the global issue of plastic pollution and to develop creative and authentic pupil-to-pupil projects that enable pupils to become more active global citizens.
