Bambisanani Partnership Assemblies to Primary Schools

Primary schools in our Bishop Wheeler Catholic Academy Trust are going to raise money for a sock appeal. Year 13 Students from St. Mary’s Menston who visited South Africa in June 2018 presented the assemblies.

They will raise money and then our charity we will buy school uniform socks to give to the students of Mnyakanya High School in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

The Bambisanani Partnership is a unique collaboration developed by St. Mary’s Menston in Leeds, UK and Mnyakanya High School in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

Bambisanani is the Zulu word meaning 'working hand in hand'. 'Bambisanani' aptly encapsulates the philosophy of the partnership which significantly now includes both the University of Leeds and Leeds Trinity University as key members.
Our partnership uses sport as a major catalyst to develop international understanding, education, health and leadership.

The initiative, which began in 2006, has gained both national and international acclaim and is a registered charity.
