Mr Guthrie's class: Skype video call with Empowering Children School, Sierra Leone.

To introduce St Mary Queen of Martyr's partnership with Empowering Children School in Freetown, our class enjoyed a very special Skype video call with the pupils live from Sierra Leone! We had prepared questions and were welcomed by traditional African songs and dances from children of all ages who attend school there! As the children and their families in Sierra Leone have been recovering from devastating floods, we were extremely happy to see every single child smiling ear to ear throughout our conversation.

 

International Q&A session!

The children were so enthusiastic and they all wanted to ask the questions they had prepared. We discussed a range of topics from favourite foods, to musical tastes, to preferred football teams!

The children are doing more research as we aim to learn even more about our new friends at the Empowering Children School. We are looking forward to our next Skype conversation and would like to thank the school's headteacher, Mr Kamara, for helping to arrange the conversation. His constant enthusiasm will be great as our partnership continues to blossom. We keep those pupils of his who were affected by the flood in our prayers.
