PUPILS have teamed up with Egypt schoolchildren to embark upon an international arts project.

PUPILS have teamed up with Egypt schoolchildren to embark upon an international arts project.

Year nine students at Kidbrooke School were visited by teachers from Mostafa Kamel School, Egypt, to plan a joint arts project, last Friday.

The Rivers of the World Project involved students from 34 London schools twinned with the same number of international schools, who have so far produced banners displayed by HMS Belfast, Southbank.

The Kidbrooke students can now study the history and ecology of the River Thames whilst their Egyptian counterparts will study the Nile.

Kidbrooke School's arts manager, Shermaine Slocombe, said: "The plan is to set each other tasks and teaching ideas. They learn English and Arabic so they're very keen.

"It could possibly lead to us going over to Egypt to visit their school, but we'll have to see how that develops."

To view the students' work visit rivers.thamesfestival.org and look in 'school projects'.
