"Same but Different" Day: Friday 12th May 2017

On Friday, Overton CE held a "Same but Different" Ugandan themed day. 

The aim of the day was to build upon and support our link with our friends in Mityana.  During the day, awareness was further raised about what Mityana is like; remove stereotypical perceptions of Africa; and to look at the similarities and differences we share. 

The day also provided an opportunity to fundraise by allowing non-uniform in the colours of the Ugandan flag.  The money raised will further help the aim of Mityana to become self-sufficient. 

Well done to all the children, staff and families for supporting us on this day. An amazing £360 was raised.  Thank you.

Our Curriculum Project 2011

In October 2013, Mrs Wyeth visited Kibubula again and helped paint the new teacher’s accomodation. This was part funded by Overton, Mityana Projects (a charity involving the local church St Mary’s) and a commerical company. Have a look at the short video below!
