Botswana Exchange 2017

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Important Announcements

Yesterday saw the conclusion of our 2017 British Council Connecting Classrooms exchange with Lotsane Senior Secondary School in Botswana.

Our guests, Head Teacher Mr Khangelani Tshebo, Guidance Teacher Mrs Lorato Semadi and Art Teacher Mr Justice Kgosana, along with ten students departed yesterday morning.

They were our guests for almost two weeks during which time they experienced so much. As well as important time in school attending classes, visiting departments and being actively involved in our community, the group also had wonderful visits. Highlights included the snow up on Cairngorm, the beach at Nairn (they are from a landlocked country), attending a Civic Reception at the Inverness Town House, Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle etc. They also took part in our bi-annual Fashion Show which once again helped us raise funds to support the exchange.

Thank you to everyone in school and in our community for supporting this important visit. Special thanks to the parents, staff and others in our community who hosted our visitors and made them feel welcome.

Plans are now well underway for our fifth visit to Botswana and Lotsane Senior Secondary School in June 2018.
