Youth and Schools Forum: Catch-Up

A catch-up with some 'old' faces and meet some 'new'!

UK time 16:00 – 17:00 Malawi time 17:00 – 18:00
Location Online on Teams

We extended this invitation to everyone, for the first Youth and Schools event of this Academic year. It was a chance to catch up with some "old" faces and meet some "new". An opportunity to discuss how we could all develop our links between Scotland and Malawi.

Ian Mitchell ('Mitch') who has been greatly involved in the school partnerships between Beath High and Mapanga Primary/Njale Primary in Malawi joined the SMP staff team as Youth & Schools Officer. Having retired from teaching Physics in Fife for over 30 years, Mitch has visited the Malawi schools three times and has much experience in the positive impact of partnerships.

Confirmed contributors included
  • Our colleagues in MaSP - working with Malawian schools for partnerships.
  • Richard Travers - George Watson's College, making a partnership work.
  • Pamela Lundberg - Armadale Academy, why they feel a partnership is important.
  • Natalie Lorimer - David Livingstone Birthplace, new resource launch for partnership use.

    Join us to hear what's going on and contribute to the partnership chat!
