Sharing Adventures

On Monday 18th September, Year 10 welcomed two visitors to one of their MFL lessons. Mr Nigel Melville (MFL link governor) introduced his brother Mr Lionel Melville who came in to talk about his experiences of working abroad. Mr Melville spent two years working with the V.S.O on a community development project in Ethiopia after leaving school. This motivated him to train as a teacher and return to Ethiopia for 15 years to teach at a mixed local and international school. He has spent the past 35 years in Papua New Guinea and was awarded an M.B.E. for services to the country’s education and development.

Year 10 were grateful to Mr Melville for taking time out of his visit back to England to come and talk to them. Miss Williams (Head of Modern Languages) said:

“It was wonderful for pupils to hear about his adventures and the possibilities that the world has to offer. I hope that it has inspired many of them to look for these adventures themselves”.
