Representatives from Alford’s Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School talked about the school and its successes during a visit to the Alford & Mablethorpe Rotary Club this week.
Headteacher Angie Francis was accompanied by Head Girl Jinny Banham and Head Boy Edward Derlien at the club’s meeting on Tuesday, October 15.
Members were impressed by the talk.
“Jinny and Edward were particularly inspirational when they described their educational experience at the Alford school and the way that all students and staff were treated with equal respect and care in a wide ranging programme,” said a spokesperson.
“Headteacher Angie spoke of the school’s direct involvement with business and the recent receipt of the “International Schools Award” by the British Council for their close association and work with schools in Sydney, Australia,” they added.
Head Girl Jinny is shortly to spend a year’s exchange in Australia.
Head Boy Edward, meanwhile, is a past participant in the “Rotary Young Leaders Award” scheme, which provides a challenging experience for youngsters at Castleton Camp in Derbyshire.
“Rotary has worked with the school in many different ways over the years and on behalf of the club David Black expressed the hope that this would continue into the future,” continued the spokesperson.
“Rotary Assistant Governor Fiona Martin from Horncastle, who was also present, drew attention to the many national Rotary competitions for young people such as “Young Chef” and “Young Musician” and hoped that this too would provide development opportunities for students at the school.”
