  9. Link Ethiopia began in 2007 We work in partnership with the regional government of the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples’ Regional State (SNNPRS). Link works at all levels of the education system – with parents, communities, teachers, school managers, district education authorities and central government – to identify and remove the obstacles to quality education The project will have an impact on approximately 140,000 children, teachers and woreda staff in extremely deprived rural areas.

  10. Link is working to improve the quality of education in rural schools so that children and their communities have a better chance in life. Your work as a partner school can support African school improvement. By doing so you can find out how education, health, environment and other important issues impact on your partner school learners, teachers, communities and country.

  11. We are supporting 120 primary schools in four districts: Damot Gale The majority of the 188,000 population live below the poverty line and have poor access to social services. There are 33 primary schools in the woreda and approximately 35,000 primary school students. Bolosso Sore The main problems for the woreda are high poverty levels and over-population. It has a population of 201,000 and consists of 29 rural kebeles. There are 32 primary schools with 40,000 students. DamotPulasaMost of the 102,000 population grow maize, beans and sweet potato, however rain failure and pests are a recurrent problem and often drive much of the population into hunger. Damot SoreDamot Sore has a population of 138,430. Similarly to DamotPulasa, many survive on growing crops and therefore suffer similar problems, because of this migration out of the area is popular.

  12. School linking & your curriculum Brainstorm: What would you like to tell your partner school about? What would you like to learn from your partner school?

  13. Think about projects you might like to take part in ...

  14. Step 1. Making contact • Effective communication with your partner school is the foundation for a successful partnership. Try to make contact with your partner school as soon as possible so that you can begin to agree the aims of your partnership. • Step.2 Conducting a Baseline Audit and Activity • Carry out a baseline audit to find out what activities with a global dimension are already taking place within your school, and conduct a baseline assessment of staff and pupil’s knowledge and understanding of international development and global citizenship. A good place to start is the activity “What do we know about...?” which is just one activity to help evaluate the effectiveness of embedding global citizenship into the curriculum and across the school, available in “How do we know it’s working?’ • Step.3 Introducing the link to your school • Set up display area for information and artefacts from your partner school and their country. A group of pupils could responsibility for this and update it as the partnership develops; teachers can use the resources to bring international education to life. • Hold a whole school event or assembly. Organise an Africa Day or a themed assembly to introduce the school partnership to the pupils, staff and school community and raise awareness of what you are trying to achieve by linking with school in Africa. Use the photos from your partner school and look on the Link Schools website. • Form a School Partnership Committee with students, staff, school governing bodies and parents. This will help to involve the wider community in your school partnership, share responsibilities, set short and long term aims and evaluate the partnership as it develops. It will also help to ensure continuity of the partnership if there are staff changes at your school.

  15. Step4. Creating a school profile Put together a school profile and introductory letter to send to your partner school. Send information about your school and ask pupils to interview staff members and one another about the school and hat goes on there. Get the whole school community involved with compiling the introductory information and ask them to write about how the community is involved in the school and their hopes for the partnership. Step 5. Planning for the future You will be sent a copy of Link School’s Programme Partnership Pledge at the start of your school partnership. The Partnership Pledge sets out some of the basic commitments that will help to make your partnership successful. Think carefully about how much correspondence you will exchange and what would be most useful for both schools. Think about embedding the link in your School Development Plan to ensure the whole school’s commitment to the link. This will also help you to review progress and set new targets. Step6. Creating a Partnership Agreement This is a working document to help you to ensure that your partnership is as realistic and productive as possible. The Partnership Agreement is at the heart of a school partnership and it is best practice to set one up with your partner school as early as possible. It will help your o focus on realistic aims, establish mutually agreed educational goals and evaluate the effectiveness of your partnership. Step7. Take part in a joint learning project We currently have themed resources on the topics of health and the environment enabling exciting joint learning to take place within the curriculum of both schools.
