The Afritwin programme involves a three way link between the schools of the global north with two schools of the south, Northwood and a historically disadvantaged school in Kwa Mashu. From the inception of the programme in 2006, our bond with our UK school, Bournside in Cheltenham has strengthened culminating in three reciprocal learner exchange tours, which were both culturally and academically enlightening to all parties. Over the years the schools have engaged in exciting curricular projects in Life Sciences, English, Maths and Afrikaans which broadened the horizons of learners on both sides of the equator. The co-ordinator of the programme at Northwood, Shomane Pillay, has presented strategies to maintaining an effective partnership at an international Conference in Cape Town. This year once again sees two of our Academic Heads of subject, Vincent Vadivellu and Ronnie Harishun jetting off to our link school in the UK to share expertise and broaden their knowledge and skills in global trends in education. This exchange by its very nature, is bound to benefit Northwood Boys in their academic endeavors.
