Our Links in Tanzania

The Diocese of Leeds is linked with the Dioceses of Mara, Rorya and Tarime in Tanzania.

There are links between churches, communities and schools and is about:

  • Friendship - through visits, letters and emails
  • Prayer - we pray for each other often by name
  • Practical Support - in whatever way we can

Our Link School - ACT Shalom

Our link school is the Anglican Church School of Shalom.


There is a baby class and a nursery class at ACT Shalom. There are about 22 children in each class and all children greet adults and ask how they are. The children are always polite. State schools can have 250 in each class so these children are very lucky.

 

When children are around 6 years old they use numbers 1-9 to do addition and subtraction up to 10 in Maths. They should know how to write their names too. When they start Standard one class they are about 7 years old. When they are 8 years they are using 1000-9000 in Maths.

 

The school moto is, ‘Shining like stars!'

 

School day

School starts at 8am and they go home after lunch. The children are doing the Tanzania curriculum but in English. At this school they are allowed to do more creative subjects on a Friday such as art, games and sport. Many schools in Tanzania only do the traditionally academic subjects throughout the week.

 

School fees

School fees are about 900,000 (about £300) shillings for transport and school fees including dinner and morning porridge.

The current message is that schools are not as safe as they were in September and you are urged to only send your child to school if you qualify and it is absolutely necessary. Please email enquiries to admin@st-michaelangels.calderdale.sch.uk
