New Furniture For The Kiswa School

The new desks were made locally by local carpenters
with money donated from the School in Gerrards Cross

Very Smart!!

Nicola Flower, Head Teacher at Gerrards Cross CE School writes with great news about the way that they have been able to follow through on their link with the Kiswa school in Kampala...

The new school year started on 15 September at Kiswa school and we have been delighted to receive photographs of the children and their staff with new furniture. Through fundraising events at The Gerrards Cross CE School organised by the PTA and by the children themselves, we have been able to support the staff and pupils at Kiswa by funding the provision of 31 new benches with desk tops: the children can now write without the need to kneel on the mud floor.

Our children have written letters to the pupils at Kiswa and we have also sent some of our uniform to them – both staff and pupils at Kiswa can now regularly be seen sporting Gerrards Cross t-shirts and polo shirts.
