Pirang Basic Cycle School, Pirang, Gambia

Peatmoor Community Primary School is twinned with Pirang Basic Cycle School in The Gambia.  Through the sponsorship of the British Council we have been able to establish a link between the two schools. Mrs Adams and Mrs Bissex visited Pirang in February 2014. During the trip they were able to take out resources for the Gambian teachers and also sports equipment for the children.  This was only possible due to the generosity of the children of Peatmoor who raised funds to buy the resources. 

As part of the visit Mrs Adams and teachers from Lydiard Park Academy taught in Pirang School.  Mrs Adams and Mrs Bissex lead P E lessons and the teachers from LPA lead Maths, Music and English lessons.

As you will see from these photographs life in Gambia is very different from life in England.
