Our guests from Blackburn Rovers and Africa

Mrs Gavin (Connecting Classrooms Co-ordinator) has successfully organised a 3 year partnership between Blackburn Rovers Community Trust, and the Ysgol John Bright international ‘Connecting Classrooms’ project.

This fantastic affiliation with the trust will be a first for both the British Council and Blackburn Rovers.

During the visit from our international school partners, there was an opportunity for the African Head Teachers and local authority staff to visit Blackburn and observe their fantastic education facilities and work done by their community trust. Students also got to work with some of the club’s football coaches at YJB  during the visit by our international guests. This is just a snap shot of what this sector leading partnership has to offer to both our own students here in Wales, and for our African partners schools – so watch this space!

The initiative was featured in the match day programme for the Blackburn Rovers vs. Chelsea match, on the 30th October, click on the image below to have a read…
