Zambia Day

Zambia Day 2017
On the final day of term, HMS held a day to think about school life in our partnership school in Kitwe, Zambia.
Lots of events took place during this day which was made all the more authentic by us having zero power due to an issue with the local electricity source. Did this stop us? Not a chance! 
The pupils and staff applied all the energy they had left to make this a very special and poignant day-teaching with limited resources and eating typical Zambian cuisine (including caterpillars!). Look out for the updates/photos in the Hexham Courant and thank you to all involved in making it such a success. Particular thanks to Mr Rutherford and Miss Bird and the HMS International Club.
