A Visitor from The Gambia
On Thursday 15th October, the students were visited by a very special guest. Mr Robert Mendy is a headteacher at the Longman Memorial School in The Gambia. He presented to year 10 in assembly and visited classes sharing his experiences as a headteacher in his country. He was very impressed with the students in our school and remarked that his day had been 'wonderful' on more than one occasion. It also provided the students with an opportunity to learn a little bit about what life is like in a country very different from their own.
Mr Mendy has spent his time in the UK visiting other schools in the area. With this visit to Carleton, we hope we can begin to make some positive links with his school in The Gambia.
