My name is Malefu Alice Moreki. My country is Lesotho. I am a primary teacher in the rural district called Thaba-Tseka. My school is Loti Community Primary School with 10 teachers and 369 learners.Read more
I am Mamotsoane Mary Ranchobe, a teacher from Lesotho at a school called Thaba-TSeka L E C where I was working with standard seven students. Now I am placed in a Welsh school called San Sior. The principal is Mr Jones who inspired me mostly by his activeness and enthusiasm. Mr Daniel Price is a deputy principal, very caring supportive and loving mentor I have got. I was placed in year six and year four where I was working collaboratively with teachers and learners but I worked well with all different classes. Both teachers and learners were highly involved in the teaching and learning in order to be competent learners and teachers.
After a wonderful 5 months teaching in Lesotho, I have had the opportunity to share my experiences of living the Basotho life with children and teachers at my placement school St James in Caerphilly.
With this brief message, may I salute all those who have contributed to the success of Dolen Cymru over the last 30 years.
The idea of developing a relationship between two countries over 6000 miles apart was never going to be easy but, as Wales and Lesotho pioneered this first country-to-country twinning, so Dolen Cymru has introduced many thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds to one another and, in doing so, ensured a better understanding between our peoples. In the words of OT Sefako, the Lesotho High Commissioner in 1985, and the first chair of the organisation in Lesotho, the link offered "a new dimension in international relationships". In the 21st century, in an increasingly troubled world, Dolen Cymru offers a pattern of cooperation which is more relevant than ever.
