A Tanzanian school headteacher has shared experiences of life in Africa with Morley school pupils.

Jackson Lucas Mwenula, of Sunray School in Tanzania, was introduced to youngsters at Queenswood School, in Morley, today and will stay all week as part of a special exchange partnership.

He spoke of life in Africa as children presented their ‘journey’ themed work which compares the kind of things they see on their trip to school.

Queenswood headteacher Julie Tanner said: “It’s just massive, it makes learning so real and adds so much to the curriculum in such a fun way. They’re learning so much about each other.”

Mr Mwenula will stay for World Book Day on Thursday.
