A good way to learn a language

Grade R students who started their school life only 3 weeks ago! It is a fun way for them to learn to speak Afrikaans as the majority of them speak Xhosa. They will also learn some English this year. Some older students speak 4 languages; Xhosa, Afrikaans, Zulu and English. No mean achievement for a 9yr old! If they go to another school at the end of their time at Stockwell, they will be taught in English.

Boys having a great time!

Boys at Stockwell School having a great time!

This is a group of older boys, performing dances they have choreographed, that show their culture. They are dancing in front of the rest of the school.
You can see staff in the background, especially the Headteacher, joining in and thoroughly enjoying herself.
One of the boys is wearing one of the sweatshirts donated by Barclay School, Stevenage, England, and another boy has a white shirt and he has drawn the Arsenal FC emblem on the back!
