TEACHERS in South Africa have paid tribute to the work of the Bambisanani partnership.

Moses Xulu who teaches at the Ntolwane Primary said: “It was wonderful to see the St. Mary’s and Mnyakanya students working together; they are a powerful team, so mature, confident and effective.”

William Vilakazi from Mnyakanya School added: “The Bambisanani Partnership is fantastic.

“The joint learning projects that we are developing in art, creative writing and using sport are wonderful in raising aspirations of young people from both communities.”

The 14 St Mary’s sixth-form students taking part in the scheme were George Brabin, Georgina Byrne, Jamie Carter, Jessica Connolly, Eleanor English, Torquil Hall, Freya Kew, Ciara Hanstock, Harry Minchella, Robert Neesam, Brogan O’Connor, Gemma Pennock, Patrick Smith and Alessandra Valle-Metaxas.
