Lottery funding to celebrate Scotland’s Commonwealth connections

Funding1Wester Hailes Education Centre has received lottery funding to send three pupils to the Northern Cape, South Africa to visit their twin school, Barkly West High School. During the visit they will learn Tswana dancing and teach the South African children Scottish country dancing. This will be followed by a return exchange visit where primary school children from feeder primary schools will attend workshops in Tswana dancing. The project will culminate in a final Commonwealth celebration event with South African and Indian dancing .
