Swiss Cottage School welcomes Vanessa Adigbo from New Horizon School, Accra Ghana, as part of the Connecting Classroom project, funded by the British Council.
New Horizon School is a charitable institution in Ghana providing education, vocational training and employment for young people with special educational needs.
The Connecting Classrooms Programme is funded by the British Council to create opportunities for teachers and educators from around the world to develop an understanding of other countries and cultures; and become better equipped to understand global issues in education, whilst also developing their own skills and practice.
Lucy, Family Inclusion Manager visited New Horizon School in Ghana in October. During her visit Lucy led two pieces of work across the school. The first part of the project brief was to introduce creativity and the use of play into the curriculum through story telling, drama and story props. The second part of the project was to establish a parent support programme, to address the needs of a diverse age range.
New Horizon School was established by Mrs Salome Francois in 1972 and is with the Ministry of Education, and has been legally registered as a voluntary, non-profit making and charitable institution in Ghana. It is unique in Ghana as the only school providing vocation training and sheltered employment for adults with SEND.
