Tanzanian delights

On Wednesday Hapiness and Anna spent their time in different classes.  They taught us how to greet people in Swahilli, how to count up to 10 and also showed us how to do an African dance, whilst singing an African song, that they sing in Mikumi Town Primary School.
In the evening we had our African and Scottish night at school. Hapiness and Anna cooked some traditional Tanzanian food of chicken with pilau rice and this was followed by a Scottish shortbread topped with strawberries and cream!
Thursday our visitors went to Sandbach High School and Seabridge Primary School to have a look around and meet their children. The day ended with an evening of rock and pop at Seabridge.
Friday, Mr Mitchell invited them to be Diners of the week with Mrs Hurry. They deserved to be our special guests!
We thoroughly enjoyed having Hapiness and Anna here and they showed and told us a lot of things that are different in Tanzania to our school. We hope they will return to Shavington Primary School again in the future.
