Twenty School children from Joakin and St. Pauls’ Primary Schools through the ‘Dreams and Teams’ have shared ideas and cultures.
With support from the British Council and the youths sport Trust in the UK; Dreams and Teams held their festival on Friday at the St Edwards Secondary School Pre- School. The local tutor of dreams and teams Eustace Wachuku Johnson explained to Awoko that the programme was all about cultural awareness and diversity involving 40 countries in the world.
He said a sport was used as a vehicle to transmit the ideals of dreams and teams by targeting school going kids. The purpose according to him was to train the kids as young leaders.
St Edwards School and Government Model are linked with Alderman Smith School and Sport College and Kent High School respectively. They exchange cultural ideas and leadership styles.
The festival Manager for dreams and teams, Saidu Sesay who was part of those earlier trained said he had developed more leadership skills on how to conduct activities and have known about different cultures and sporting activities. “The whole programme is talking about global citizenship” he said
Four Schools are going to be the next to be targeted. He thanked the British Council and its facilitator, Joseph Abu for such programme and appealed for more equipment for the next festival.
