Teaching in Botswana

Although it’s the October Holidays for most of the school, two Charleston Academy teachers have extended their teaching term this week. They are at our Connecting Classrooms partner school in Botswana. Ms Sutherland (Principal Teacher of Chemistry) and Mrs Sutherland (Art Teacher) are spending ten days working at our partner school, Lotsane Senior Secondary School in Palapye, Botswana.

Funding for the exchange has come from the British Council and meant that two teachers from Botswana visited Charleston Academy before the October break. Thirty Charleston Academy pupils visit Lotsane Senior Secondary School in June and July 2014.

Lotsane Senior Secondary School is located on the western edge of Palapye, a sprawling town of nearly 30,000 inhabitants. The satellite image shows the school teaching blocks, student dorms and the teachers houses.
