Teachers share benefits of trip to South Africa.

TEACHERS from schools in Warwickshire who visited South Africa to learn about teaching citizenship and tackling racism were today sharing their experiences.

Staff from Lighthorne Heath Primary School and Kenilworth School and counterparts from schools in Rugby, Bedworth and Hartshill talked about the trip to an audience of education professionals at the county's Manor Hall teachers' centre.

On the trip, they visited schools for pupils of all ages and cultures.

They also visited an Aids orphanage and spent time meeting people in Soweto.

Many said the experience was life-changing, with a powerful personal impact as well as providing a huge boost to their professional development.
