During a holiday to Nepal, Mrs Fay visited our partner school, Gladstone Academy, to reinforce our friendship and partnership.
She was welcomed by the Principal, Mr Binod Kumar Koirala, at a special assembly.
The school has grown incredibly during the 6 years of partnership and now houses 1500 pupils aged between 2 and 16. They now have 3 sites. Pre Primary 2 to 6, Primary 7 to 10 and Senior 11 to 16.
The Primary building was completed 6 months ago and the design was based on the layout of our school here in Bowburn. All the classrooms are based around a central Hall and this department ha been constructed to very high earthquake safe standards.
Mrs Fay spent several days in the school, reading stories and teaching rhymes to the younger children and telling the senior classes about life in England and answering their many questions.
The Principal and some of his staff are hoping to visit us here in the near future.
