A TEACHER from Hook CE Primary School has landed back in the UK after sampling classroom life in the Republic of Cameroon as part of a global partnership.

And Pip Mann says it has made her more aware of just how many resources she and her pupils have compared to schools in the West Africa nation.

Hook is one of three schools from the East Riding that have forged links with three schools in the country thousands of miles away, in a project aimed at sharing ideas and resources and raising greater cultural awareness among pupils.

Stepping into a classroom in the coastal town of Limbe was, said Ms Mann, like being transported back to schools in the UK during the 1950s and 60s.

“Education is very formal. The children are impeccably behaved and regimented - but very happy.

“The classes are very large, with up to 98 pupils to one or maybe two teachers,” she said.

“I felt embarrassed when I saw how they managed with so few resources. There is plenty we could learn from them.”

The visitors took a laptop for each of the three schools involved in the partnership; paid for the installation of the Internet at one school for all three to use; and gave them a digital camera - the equivalent of three months’ wages over there, said Ms Mann.

The equipment has enabled the schools to set up an international site through which children have been e-mailing and sending photos to each other.
