Archant

Two Ethiopian teachers came to visit The King’s this week as the Ottery school continued to forge links with the African country.

The academy has been working in partnership with the Dejach Geresu Duki School for the past four years, and has undertaken numerous staff and student visits.

Faith Jarrett and Rob Gammon, The King’s headteacher and deputy head, visited the school in Woliso at the beginning of March, and spent time in the school observing teaching and finding out the impact the partnership has had.

And this week they hosted a visit from its director, Tesfaye Likisa, and a PE teacher, Getahun Dejene, to observe lessons, talk to staff and plan their continued partnership together.

Mr Gammon said it was a privilege to have the Ethiopians in school, and added the partnership was very important to The King’s.
