Smiling Valley Intermediate School, South Africa

Second Visit To Byrchall

June 2013


The partnership between the schools and their pupils was firmly established by now. This time four people visited England; the Principal, Mr Mongezi Mncono, the Head of the Primary Phase, Ms Ivy Ntloko, the Head of the Secondary Phase, Ms Nosisa Dante and the Director of Education for the Eastern Cape for the Catholic Church, Mrs Maureen Mesimela.

The benefit of having four people here meant that some of the new experiences in English schools could be implemented across all ages at Smiling Valley.

The visiting staff spent time working in classes with the English pupils. They were also interviewed by the pupils to find out the differences and similarities between the school experience in England and South Africa.
