Jabulani Food Court | Family Support
Identical to our relationship with Diversity Business Incubator Plymouth (DBI), our links with Jabulani have brought about a deeper sense of community and connection. Jubalani's story of coffee and their Motherland in Ruanda is moving. It has inspired our pupils to research the coffee's origins and begin discussions with Owens Coffee to evaluate the benefits of stocking it for our community. This has not just brought about the obvious curriculum oportunities linked to British Values, History and Geography, but also extended opportunties for Maths and Media to be applied using real life learning situations.
Staff members and their friends were fortunate to be invited to the prestigious launch event of Jubulani Coffee and its film screening. It's story can be viewed below. You will see why we value Jabulani as a key partner for our pupils and their families.
Our families have visited Jabalani Food Market and taken part in cultural story telling sessions. They have connected with BAME families from across the city and developed family like relationships with venders such as local designers, artsits, chefs and seemstreses. To us here at Mayflower, Jubalani is more than a Food Market. It is a base for our families to rest and rejuvenate as well as link up and learn new skills. Jubalani supports us as a school. So many of our deepest conversations about learning as well as what it means to feel at home in a new place (such as a new school like Mayflower), have come from discussions over a coffee at Jubalani. One such conversation was with Lilianne. Here take on what home means to here can be heard as part of our Diversity Community Newsletter collection. Listen to it here.
