The  Kempinski Gold Coast City Accra on Wednesday 5th October 2022 hosted parents, students and the media at an exhibition organised by experienced consultant Mark Brooks Education, who has been advising families in West Africa for 14 years.

 

The event formed part of a visit by top principals from the UK  to host leadership seminars and the Boarding School Fair in Ghana.

A delegation of a dozen principals and senior leaders met with parents, students, government ministers and business leaders at a UK Boarding School Exhibition to discuss the opportunities offered by a British boarding education.

Supports

The exhibition was supported by the British High Commission in Ghana and the Department for International Trade (DIT) team in Accra who provided superb support for the UK Boarding Schools Week events.

Attendees

The exhibition was attended by more than 40 families and joined by over 60 Heads and senior leaders.

”We are very grateful to Harriet Thompson, British High Commissioner to Ghana and Non-Resident Ambassador-Designate to Togo, Burkina Faso and Benin who visited the exhibition and was introduced to the eleven participating schools.” The team indicated.

 

“The United Kingdom and Ghana enjoy shared values, a thriving trading relationship and a belief in the transformation that an outstanding, all-round education with strong pastoral care can make to the futures of our young people,” said Mark Brooks.

Many successful academics, artists, commercial leaders, lawyers, medics, musicians, politicians, scientists and sportspeople from across Ghana owe their resilience, self-confidence and success to the firm foundations they developed at a British boarding school.

 

 

“I am really looking forward to coming to Ghana in October.  I am excited to meet the people and fellow heads on this amazing tour, I really just can’t wait,” said Christine Cunniffe, Principal of LVS Ascot.

The events are fully supported by the British Deputy High Commission in Ghana, and in association with the UK’s Department for International Trade (DIT).

Parents’ Views on the Exhibition

Speaking to some parents during the exhibition, the parents explained that the purpose of the exhibition was very important and their visit to the exhibition was the best decision they have taken.

They expressed a desire to send their wards to UK Boarding Schools for quality education of their wards.

Students’ Views of the Exhibition

Some students who spoke to EducationGhana showed much interest in the exhibition and their ambitions to study in the UK in the future. The students were very much excited about the exhibition as they hope their parents will give them the opportunity to study in any of the UK Boarding Schools.

”I am happy to be here and hope to get the opportunity to study in any of the UK Boarding Schools” One young student said.
