Our Zambian Exchange Programme links Kingsmead School with Mukuba Boys’ and Helen Kaunda Girls’ Schools in Kitwe, Zambia. The programme follows a two year cycle where both students and teachers make reciprocal exchange visits. The first exchange took place in 2000-2001 and since then more than 250 students and numerous staff from the three schools have taken part in this experience.
We have now commenced our tenth exchange programme and nine Kingsmead students from Years 9 and 10 have been successful in securing a place. The Zambian students and teachers are due to travel to the UK to stay with their host families this July. The following year our students and teachers will make the return visit to Zambia.
The challenge of fundraising has begun – we will keep you up to date on planned events. Also check out the group’s new Facebook page: Kingsmead Zambia Exchange 2017-19
