18 Danish students on experience sharing trip at Kuntaur Upper Basic School

The Point: Wednesday, January 29, 2020

http://thepoint.gm/africa/gambia/article/18-danish-students-on-experience-sharing-trip-at-kuntaur-upper-basic-school

Eighteen students and two teachers from Helsingoer Little School in Denmark are on a three weeks trip in country as guest of Kuntaur Upper Basic School in Central River Region North.

The rationale of the visit is to learn, share teaching, techniques and socio-cultural issues with each other.

The visit is an annual event since the creation of the link in 1997, pioneered by the link coordinator Kanimang Camara.

Events organized for this year’s visit include joint classes; question and answers session on key thematic areas such as child education, environment, religion, politics, agriculture and gender. They will also visit Armitage senior secondary school in Jangjanbureh; participate in inter- house athletic competitions; visit to families of Gambian friends to learn local culture; visit the stone circles in Wassu and weekly market “Lumo”;

During the welcome ceremony, the school’s acting principal Landing Badgie said the annual visits have been significantly providing the enabling teaching and learning environment to the students.

Hmmmmmmmm Dosn't sound much like a fun holiday visit,OK so they going to "visit the stone circles in Wassu and weekly market “Lumo”;


"Events organized for this year’s visit include joint classes; question and answers session on key thematic areas such as child education, environment, religion, politics, agriculture ........."

Sounds a lot like the National Assembly in Gambia

The Teachers and Students will very much enjoy their free time I am sure

Toubab, This is not meant to only be a "fun holiday" but an educational trip. Grade 10 students from Elsinore Little School had been going on this trip since we established it in 1997. I travelled with them during the first years.

Imagine how much teenage European kids learn living in a village in rural Gambia for almost two weeks. The objectives are to expose both parties to learn and share each other’s traditions and cultures.


Visit to the Stone Circles and the "Lumo" Market in Wassu are some of the activities.

Hopefully we will soon have an English school in a similar trip.

Momodou, thank you for the "Clarification" () if it had been made clear by the author of the article that the students were not young children the name of their school was "Helsingoer Little School " implying in my mind young children,and not teenagers on the verge of adulthood.
If I was a wealthy person and could afford to build and staff ,employ cleaners security people tables desks and all the many items that are required to found and maintain a school I would have a go.
