Since early 2009 Tonypandy Community College has enjoyed close links with Busui Central College in Mbale Uganda.
The partnership link was set up by the Pont charity which exists within our local community.
They helped and supported the establishment of the partnership by assisting with meetings, communication between countries and fund raising.
The Community Group staff based in Tonypandy Community College have travelled to Mbale to support the partnership since 2008.
The group has produced displays, information and graphics in the College along with plenty of fundraising events.
Reports on the partnership have been given to school governors and at parents’ forums.
Displays have been shown at parent evenings and the widespread media coverage both in newspapers and on social media has been overwhelming.
