Event - Visitors from Jamaica

2 November 2011

On Wednesday 2nd November, the Abbey Catholic Primary school welcomed visitors from Jamaica. Three delegates from the country visited as part of a 14 day tour of Birmingham schools.

With the impending arrival of the Jamaican Olympic team, schools across Birmingham have begun developing links with schools in the country. We have been linked to 'Villa Road Infant and Junior School' in Mandeville, Jamaica.

Our visitors really enjoyed their tour of the school, they commentated on how child orientated our school was and loved our idea of a Pizza party for the best class for attendance.

We are really looking forward to further developing these links and sharing excellent practise with our link school.
