Local teacher ready to head to Rwanda


A Donside school teacher is preparing to travel to Rwanda this summer to help develop areas of the country’s curriculum, learning and teaching.

Suzanne Munro, a teacher at Craigievar School, will take part in the Global Learning Partnerships programme by heading out to Rwanda for four weeks.

The programme is an 18-month course led and supported by The Wood Foundation and Aberdeenshire council to promote Global Citizenship at school level in the local area.

Suzanne will work alongside 13 other Scottish teachers and Rwandan teachers leading CPD events to develop all areas of their curriculum, learning and teaching.

On returning to Scotland, the teachers reflect on their own practice; looking at what they could change with emphasis on resourcefulness, creativity, and collaborative working.

In order to raise the £1000 target she has to reach to take part in the course, Suzanne is holding local fundraising events.

The first of these is a ceilidh with local band Jiggert Pokery at Craigievar Hall on Friday May 1 at 8pm.

Tickets cost £10 and are available from 07854 870 134.

There will also be a Holistic Body and Soul Fayre in Alford Public Hall on May 16 from 9.30am to 3pm, where visitors can sample treatments for the mind, body and soul.

The event will feature reiki, reflexology, aromatherapy, tarot and angel card readings, and more.

Psychic and medium Audrey Harper, who has appeared on Sky TV, will also be in attendance at the event.
