Over the last two weeks we have had the privilege of hosting 14 students, 2 teachers and 1 governor from a school in Zambia that is sponsored by the Sisters of the Holy Cross.
This has proven to be a fantastic learning opportunity for our students to engage with young people from a different culture and spend time discussing their shared interests, enthusiasms and worries. It has also been a wonderful opportunity for our students to be good hosts and show how much they care about people from other countries and cultures.
For the students and staff joining us, I am sure that they had a fantastic experience learning about England and how we approach education.
The visit has enriched our community enormously and I know that friendships have been made that will last a long time.
Hopefully, we can do a reciprocal visit in due course.
I would like to thank all the students who looked after our guests so well and the staff who accommodated and coordinated the visit.
