A SCHOOL PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN THE GERMAN BONHOEFFER-GYMNASIUM AND THE UGANDAN IKIRAH EDUCATION CENTRE

A SCHOOL PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN THE GERMAN BONHOEFFER-GYMNASIUM AND THE UGANDAN IKIRAH EDUCATION CENTRE.

"When the partnership to the German secondary school Bonhoeffer-Gymnasium was established in 2012, it first seemed like a big dream, Mr. KabuguHamuza, the head teacher of the Ugandan primary school in the Lwengo district, remembered. Therefore, he is now very proud to announce good results of the cooperation with the German school located in Wiehl, North Rhine-Westphalia.

After a two-week visit of the Ugandan head teacher and his assistant Ms. Zam-ZamNakasiin Germany, they got a very intense impression of the German every day school life by accompanying pupils in workshops concerning health and hygiene. In so doing, the Sodis method was presented, where PET bottles filled with water and put on metal pads are exposed to the blazing sun for six hours. Through this procedure the water is sterilized and people are able to avoid gastro-intestinal diseases, as Mr. Roland Schmidt, the head teacher of Bonhoeffer-Gymnasium stated. These insights are planned to be implemented by Mr. Hamuza who is very thankful for the extraordinary experiences made during his stay in Germany.

Recently, this school partnership was presented at the UNESCO¡¯s Sustainability Conference in Tokio, Japan and for the second time, it received the certificate "Schule der Zunkunft (School of the future) by the Education Ministry of North Rhine-Westphalia and the Conservation Academy NRW.
