Nablus schools keen to link with Dundee

Then off to working schools - first a boys' middle school and then a girls' high school. All government schools in Nablus are single sex.

Both expressed a strong desire to work with us to interact with children in Dundee schools.

Neither has an internet connection in the school so we might consider fundraising to help provide this. Then we could use video-conferencing (Skype)to bring the pupils together.

Each of the classrooms we visited was full of lively young people who spoke to us in English. We were intrigued by references in one English exercise to a "duck bus" which none of us had ever heard about. Apparently it was a feature of river traffic for the London 2012 Olympics. Palestine is ahead of us!
