RCT Mayor Robert Smith presented, College  Governor Kim Davies and Community Manager Julie Atkins,  with gifts to take to our link school in Uganda,  Busui Central College, Mbale.

Julie and Kim are travelling to Africa later this week to spend 5 days in our link school looking at how we can develop curriculum links and work closer together on joint projects.  Two project  already underway are looking at climate change and its local impact on our weather and the other will be the “Green Mapping” both College’s.

Students raised a  fantastic £500.00 for pencils and exercise and other resources for our link school, whilst e3+ students at the College have been holding regular cake sales to raise enough money to buy  goats and  chickens for families in Mbale.  

We wish both ladies a safe jounrney and look forward to the presentation on their return.

This trip will further enhance our links with schools around the world and  follows the recent visit to China by Mrs O’Sullivan. The College was recently awarded the Foundation Award for International Schools.
