Starfish Malawi

Molehill Primary Academy has worked with the charity Starfish Malawi since January 2016 and are officially linked to Chigombe L.E.A school in Salima, Malawi. The main goals of the link are to develop global citizenship of the children in both schools, to share teaching and learning practice in both schools and to broaden and enrich educational opportunities in both schools.

We have regular assemblies, staff training sessions and classroom workshops delivered by Holly from Starfish Malawi and this has really started to bring Chigombe into Molehill.

Miss Coker is the link coordinator at Molehill and Miss Chimala is the link coordinator in Chigombe.

Below are pictures of Miss Chimala, Mr Shumba (Headteacher), some of the 1600 learners and a picture of the school grounds.
