Connecting Classrooms Partnership

The Dingle Primary School has benefitted from the British Council's Connecting Classrooms partnerships. We have been a member of a nine-school partnership involving three schools from the UK, three from South Africa and three from Zimbabwe. In previous years, we have built links with Wynberg Boys' Junior School and Wynberg Girls' Junior School in Cape Town, South Africa (along with Elworth Hall Primary School) and the link developed and expanded to include Zimbabwean schools and an extra school from both the UK and South Africa.
