African visitor for Sandringham School, St Albans
A HEADTEACHER from The Gambia has visited his partner school in St Albans.
Momodou Jallow from the Farafenni Senior Secondary School spent two days attending lessons and meeting pupils and staff at Sandringham School earlier this month.
He discussed strategies for raising achievement in both schools with Sandringham headteacher Alan Gray and other members of the leadership team, and attended a meeting with the school’s student leadership team.
The link between the two schools began in 2009 with reciprocal visits. When Sandringham students went to The Gambia in February, they presented football boots and sports equipment, as well as money for library shelving to the Farafenni school.
And Sandringham has recently been awarded a grant through the British Council to develop curriculum links between the two schools, focusing on sustainability and the environment, and more visits are planned in the next few years.
