At Parkside Academy we have resources to use in lessons to make the lessons dynamic, exciting and varied for pupils. However, many students in Africa are not as lucky as us and cannot afford basic equipment needed for learning.
We decided to make a change and give pupils in Africa a gift to make their education and learning better. Mr Thornton and geography pupils travelled in our school minibus stuffed full of surplus Geography text books.
We took them to a charity based in Sunderland called ‘Book Aid for Africa’, where they will be packed up and sent to Nigeria, before being redistributed among schools in the country.
