English teacher Sarah O’ Gorman is in Malawi right now to set up the first ever library in the town of Mzimba.
Miss O’ Gorman founded Jill Dando News at Priory Community School Academy in Weston-super-Mare five years ago and in 2019 set up a similar scheme in Malawi.
Now has flown out to launch Africa Sunrise Nursery which she helped set up with her charity LIFO. It will be officially launched next week.
There are 45 children registered at the nursery so far and the students, teacher and parents are delighted with the new addition to their community
Pupils from Castle Batch Primary School Academy have already donated books.
She said: “It is fantastic over here. It would be wonderful if as many people as possible can send over books to boost literacy and learning.
“Simply package up a used book and post it off there. It’s as simple as that and you will become part of Mzimba’s first library!”
The Malawi project was funded by Dr Ron McKechnie, who did in 2013 and his charity, One Parish Link.
Sarah added: “This is a wonderful link between our schools, Trust and the new community pre-school in Malawi.”
Limbikira Foundation will be running the nursery and has employed two local teachers
The preschool can host up to 60 students and will help them prepare for Primary school
The nursery is a key part of communal life and will help many children find their friends and achieve a education. Boys and girls alike.
A new nursery has also been set up on the Castle Batch site called Little Learners. It will offer flexible sessions between 7.30am and 6.00pm for 50 weeks of the year.
CBPSA has just been awarded a clean sweep of Good ratings by Ofsted.t.
