Mascalls Academy and Bereko Secondary School
The photos above show Mascalls Academy (secondary school), the certificate of friendship between the two schools proudly displayed in Bereko and the motto of Bereko Secondary school displayed on a school wall: Love, Unity and Peace .
As the framed certificate says, the relationship between the secondary schools started in 2008. Since that time sixth formers and teachers from Mascalls have visited Bereko on a number of occasions. Students have exchanged letters, and uniforms and text books and other teaching materials have been sent to Bereko.
Mascalls students have created two short but inspirational movies of their trips to Bereko. These can be viewed on the links below:
