President Uhuru Kenyatta and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will on Thursday conduct virtual visits of two schools in the two countries. They are Westlands Primary School in Nairobi, Kenya and Cleves Cross Primary School in Ferryhill, England. The event will start at 12noon EAT. “The visits will provide President Kenyatta and Prime Minister Johnson an opportunity to directly engage with pupils, aged between 9 and 11 years, and create a high profile moment for championing education for all, with a special focus on technology and girls’ education,” a statement from State House reads. According to State House Spokesperson Kanze Dena-Mararo, the visits are part of the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) initiative. Westlands Primary School and Cleves Cross Primary School are part of the Connecting Classrooms Through Global Learning (CCGL). The program provides opportunities for pupils to engage peers across countries on global issues such as climate action and gender equality.
