Malawian Teachers with Deputy Mayor and Mayoress and Head Teacher, Mr. WilcockOn Wednesday, November 19th. a 'plane carrying Nelson Mwale, Howard Nasoro and Macpherson Ndawala touched down at Heathrow to open a new chapter in the relationship between Bishop Ramsey and Malosa School in Malawi.

The three Malawian teachers were beginning a week long visit to the school which would give them the opportunity to see at first hand learning, teaching and educational leadership in an British school. The aim of the visit, which was partly funded by donations and partly by a grant from the British Council, was to help the Malawian school learn at first hand about pedagogy and leadership in a successful school.

Nelson Mwale, the Head Teacher of Malosa School, said : We were very impressed by the strong sense of collaboration and shared values which we saw at Bishop Ramsey. There are many things that we will try and incorporate into our work at Malosa Secondary School.

Bishop Ramsey Head Teacher, Andrew Wilcock, said: Bishop Ramsey School and Malosa Secondary School have been working in partnership over many years. Parties of Sixth Form students from Bishop Ramsey have been visiting Malosa since 2007 with another visit coming up this summer. Both schools are committed to developing their partnership which has already brought great benefits to both.

Several years ago whilst visiting the Princess Christian Unit at Mount Vernon Hospital, Executive Committee member Mr. Ivor John noticed that the walls of the corridors appeared to be so bare and unwelcoming. He had the brilliant idea of contacting the Art department at Bishop Ramsey C of E School to see whether they could supply some GCSE art work. The RRA donated the money for the frames and with the collaboration of The Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust twenty framed pictures were hung and still adorn the walls today.

However, there were still more bare walls to cover so, at the suggestion of Mr. John, the new RRA member with the resposibility for education, Mrs. Susan Midgley, asked Mr. Simon Lordan, Head of Art and Design, at Ruislip High School, whether his students could do something similar. Mr. Lordan thought this was an excellent way to showcase his students' work combined with providing a more appealing patient environment. The RRA donated £700 for the frames and on Tuesday, July 2nd. 2013 twenty  more paintings were hung and hopefully will bring pleasure to those who pass along the corridors.

In 2005 the Ruislip Residents’ Association agreed to sponsor a permanent exhibition of Bishop Ramsey CE school artwork at Mount Vernon hospital. The idea was for the school on an annual basis to renew the work on display.

The display can be viewed along the corridor of the Princess Christian Unit near Minor Injuries Unit.
