Michele Ried, principal of Mary Hill Elementary School and Nicole Elliot, the school’s leadership teacher, learned about PA-MOJA and felt that having a sister school would be an excellent opportunity for the Mary Hill students to learn about another culture and exchange their strengths.
Emily Lerosion, the PA-MOJA liaison at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, went to Mirera Primary school to begin the cultural exchange connection. The students were very excited and made a video to greet their new sister school.
Students and staff at both schools are looking forward to a long relationship of mutual learning and respect.
The PA-MOJA team would like to welcome both schools.
