School partnerships are a fantastic way to engage with pupils and teachers in another part of the world, sharing projects and experiences whilst learning about each otherís lives. The Sabre Trust works in the UK and Ghana to facilitate long term relationships between partner schools, which foster greater cultural awareness and understanding in both communities.
All of our Partner Ghana schools are located in the south of Ghana. In the UK we will assist you to bring Ghanaian culture and tradition into school, through music, drama and the arts. As the partnership develops, you will undertake joint projects with your partner school, sharing lessons and linking for live discussions over the internet.
There is an annual partnership fee to cover the cost of running termly partnership meetings and liaising closely with the teacher responsible for the partnership, the same service is provided to the partner schools in Ghana at no extra cost. We will facilitate all the partnership activities (pen pals, video links, shared projects, themed assemblies and lessons etc.) as well as providing a resource pack including ideas for assemblies, resource guides, joint projects, ideas on how to fund the school costs and how to use this to achieve the International Award.
Reciprocal teacher visits are strongly recommended as an invaluable development opportunity and a way of really cementing the relationship
between the two schools. The UK school will need to cover all flights and in-country costs for both the UK and Ghanaian teacher. It is recommended
that one visit happens each year by either the UK teacher or the Ghanaian teacher. If the UK teacher is the teacher accompanying the project team
then this visit can be doubled up. It is assumed that the host school will organise accommodation and food at minimal cost.
