Bon Voyage - Out to Africa
Today, Miss Baitson and Mrs Warcup have flown out to Freetown, the capital city of Sierra Leone. They are visiting our partner establishment, Adeline School, as part of a British Council-funded project. They are taking teaching resources that were purchased from funds raised at our special Christmas Fair. Our two teachers will spend a week with headteacher Eileen Nicol, her staff and pupils helping them with their teaching as well as learning about their teaching methods. It promises to be a memorable experience for them as they will be immersed in a completely different culture. Mrs Warcup has been to Freetown before. Following Mr Browning’s visit to ICOPS, our former partner school in 2010, Mrs Warcup and Mr Burton went out a year later. The work with this school proved difficult due to the communications links. Mrs Nicol is much more attuned to modern technology and regularly texts us via Whatsapp.
