PCSC has built up strong links with Axum Secondary School as part of the ‘Dreams and Teams’ project and now more recently the ‘connecting classrooms’ project. Both of these aim to improve shared experiences between UK and African schools so African children can benefit from our knowledge and experience and we can understand more about the challenges that countries such as Ethiopia face.
