Ponteland Community Middle School Awards

Ponteland Middle School’s involvement in overseas projects and teaching of global issues have been significant and are ongoing.

Staff at Ponteland Middle have forged links with organisations in Kenya and the school community supports teachers and pupils at Wanga Primary School, a Water for Women borehole project in Maasai Mara and a Viagenco Clinic for HIV/Aids in Mbita.

Headteacher Caroline Pryer said: “This award is a testament to the consistent kindness, love and financial support given by trustees, parents, teachers and children to our friends in Kenya. We are grateful to the charity Development Direct for their persistence in opening our eyes and hearts.”
