The Africa Office of the Royal Commonwealth Society, whose Patron and Vice-Patrons are Queen Elizabeth II and Duchess of Cornwall have endorsed the British Boarding School Expo (BBSE) in Ghana.
For the third year running, the British Boarding School Expo returns to Ghana from February 15th – 17th.
This year, as in previous years, its primary objective is to introduce Ghanaian parents and students to a vast array of options from the very best private Boarding Schools in the United Kingdom.
Organised by Everythings Education, a UK Ghana Educational organization, the British Boarding School Expo is the oldest bi-annual programme that showcases the strengths of the best British Boarding Schools to discerning Ghanaian parents.
Speaking to the media the organizer of the Expo, Elaine Cunningham–Walker, a respected Ghanaian/British educationist thanked the Commonwealth for supporting the BBSE this year.
She added, “There is never a one-size-fits-all approach to finding the best school for your child within the vast UK private School System.
“What I have done is to navigate my way around the system to find the exceptional boarding schools whose Headteachers and Directors of Admission, valued diversity and provide excellent academic and pastoral care for students”.
On his part, John Apea, Head of the Commonwealth Africa office added, “after observing Mrs. Cunningham – Walker and witnessing the sterling work that she has done with the British Boarding School Expo over the past year.
“We are pleased to support her to roll out a programme that promotes cultural learning and student recruitment between two important Commonwealth Countries – the UK and Ghana”.
He further noted, “besides promoting Commonwealth trade, I am also keen to develop teacher and student exchange programmes and to find ways in which these top British Schools can support the Commonwealth’s Queen Essay Competition and other dynamic literacy work which it does with the Office of The First Lady in Ghana”.
Home to 2.4 billion citizens, the Commonwealth includes some of the world’s largest, smallest, richest and poorest countries, spanning five regions.
