Our Partner School
Hardingstone Academy is delighted to have a new partnership with a school in Kenya, called Kamtudi School.
This is a fantastic opportunity for the children to learn about another country and its culture, traditions and lifestyle.
Pupils have sent and received information about our school to the children in Kenya, along with some questions and short stories.
Here are some of the questions our Year 5 pupils asked and the responses from the children at Kamtudi School:
|What languages do you speak? (Charlie B)||Dholuo (mother tongue), English (official language), Kiswahili (national and official language).|
