News from Tanzania

Messages from Mrs Freeman  in Tanzania:



“It is very hot here.  We have been for lunch with Mr Mwambo and spent the day visiting schools with him.  I was impressed that he managed to wear his suit all the time in this heat.  We have been for a walk through the woods with blue monkeys throwing fruit at us!  We have received great hospitality in the schools and had a meal in all three that we visited today.  We will be visiting Manyata School (Luston’s link school) tomorrow (Wednesday) – great excitement!”


“Have had a fab day.  Very very hot!”

Mrs Freeman has learnt some Tanzanian which Redwood Class have translated: “Jina lagou ni Mary.  Nina toka schule Luston.  Luston rifiki na manyat” – “My name is Mary.  I come from Luston School.  Luston are friends with Manyata!.

“Had a fantastic time with Julius Mwambo (Head Teacher at Manyata School).  All staff at Manyata are lovely.  Meeting Mrs Mwambo at their house tomorrow. Mr Mwambo loved the tree picture (ask your child about this!).


“Spent a fantastic day at Manyata Primary School today.  I saw all of the trees which were planted last year – everyone referred to them as Miss Turner’s trees.  We planted another tree to mark the occasion of the visit.  I went back to Mr Mwambo’s house and met his family.  The children at Manyata school are busy writing letters for me to bring back to Luston.”

We hope to post more news from Mrs Freeman as we receive it.
