Little Heath School
In 2010 my daughter Sabrina Spring came home from School and nonchalantly said “I nominated SLWT as our class charity”; two days later she rapturously announced that SLWT had been selected by her class. Since then Little Heath School has embraced one of our projects - FAWE Primary School, Freetown Branch.
The First week in December 2011, Sabrina came home with a large box and said “Mummy Mrs Zegallo asked me to give this to you!” In the box were Christmas cards with little token gifts from each of the 30 pupils in Year 5 in Little Heath School for the FAWE pupils in Class 5. These cards were then sent to Freetown and were presented to the FAWE School by Mrs. Marion Morgan, the Vice President of FAWE.

Facts about Sierra Leone
The Bumbuna Falls of the River Rokel
In the Loma Mountains of Sierra Leone are West Africa’s highest mainland mountain, Mount Bintumani, and the source of the country’s largest river, The Rokel. The mountains are in the northeast of Sierra Leone and many rare species of wildlife are found in its forests. Mount Bintumani (aka Mt Binitmani or Loma Mansa) stands at 6,381 feet (1,945 metres) high.
The Rokel flows south west for 240 miles (386 Kilometres) and empties into the Atlantic Ocean through the Sierra Leone River Estuary between the Western Area peninsula (which includes the capital Freetown) and Port Loko District. The Rokel’s claim to fame extends beyond physical prominence. It hosts the natural Freetown Harbour and the Bumbuna Dam - principal source of electricity supply to the capital. Most travellers to Sierra Leone will cross the river by helicopter shuttles or various forms of marine transport from the international airport at Lungi to Freetown.
