Collaboration is one of the key skills that will enable students to work in a fast-paced, ever-changing world. Two Cambridge-affiliated schools – Generation Schools in South Africa and Enko Nyamunda International School in Mozambique – recently had a unique opportunity to put their collaborative skills into practice.
In August, 29 students and three teachers from Enko Nyamunda School visited the Sunningdale campus of Generation Schools, where they spent half a day with 21 of the school’s students. Generation Schools students gave Enko Nyamunda students a tour of their campus.
Students had the opportunity to get to know each other and learn from each other about their respective schools and countries. The visit also gave teachers the chance to discuss the way they implement the Cambridge curriculum in their classrooms.
Kerryn Ackermann, Head of Operations at Generation Schools Sunningdale said: 'It was a wonderful opportunity to meet with another Cambridge school. We hope that the relationship between the two schools will continue to grow as we encourage cross-country collaboration between our students.'
The day continued with an indoor PE lesson, which involved energetic dancing. The successful visit ended with the students looking towards the future. Generation Schools has a focus on entrepreneurship, and entrepreneur Andile Dube explored the ways in which the students could make their future goals a reality. Students spent time discussing their goals and visions of where they saw themselves in a decade.
Enko Nyamunda School’s Portuguese teacher and IGCSE & CAS coordinator, António Chinguenhane, said: 'During the few hours at Generation Schools, the Enko Nyamunda International School team felt the warmth of being in a school that values and fosters a multicultural environment of learning, in which students and teachers interact freely, creating great moments where knowledge is shared without inhibitions or fear. Having shared in this experience, Enko Nyamunda International School teachers and students can now say with full conviction that being a Cambridge school is not limited by geography as we are united by one vision – a global learning community that respects diversity and culture, and fights for a peaceful world.'
