TWO Waterlooville teachers are visiting a school in Nepal to forge a relationship for their own students to enjoy for years to come.

Deborah McComb and Jane Hoon at The Waterloo School are looking forward to the 10-day trip to the 700-pupil Rampur Higher Secondary School.

They plan to take gifts to their recently-twinned school including stationery, football shirts and videos of Portsmouth and the sea.

Most special of all will be a video of youngsters signing The Animals Went in Two by Two – as 64 of the children in Rampur are deaf.

Mrs McComb said: ‘We hope to foster a strong bond so all our pupils can work on exciting projects together.

‘It’s important for our children to look beyond their own community and have a good understanding about other countries and cultures.’

Teachers from Rampur will make an return visit following the January trip.
