Summary The 2006 Teachers TV/British Council Wider Horizons competition was won by Maidenhill School in Gloucestershire. Four teachers from the school - Louise Goode (Maths), Gill Ferry (Geography), Kim Kenny (DT) and Jill Boucher (English) - travel to Kisumu, in Kenya, to spend a week forging links with Moro High School.It's July, and it's been a long year for the teachers, two of whom, Goode and Boucher, are only in their second year of teaching. When they arrive some of the group tell the Kenyan headteacher how frustrated they are with the British school system and the behaviour of their students. They are soon presented with the challenge of teaching Kenyan pupils who behave, they initially believe, as pupils should, remaining silent, listening and taking notes. They find the experience unsettling. Eventually the visitors begin to see the complexities of Kenyan society, and start to question some of their preconceptions
