Sandrai Addai is a teacher at Owabi Primary School near Kumasi and she will be joining staff at Fairfield School for a week.

The school has been chosen to take part in a twinning project to develop international links with Ghana to boost global education.

The Connecting Classrooms initiative is organised through the UK Government and the British Council and Fairfield was selected because of its commitment to teaching young people about global issues.

Headteacher Lesley Barton said: “We are delighted to welcome Sandrai to our school. It is a fantastic chance for the children to learn about another country and for Sandrai to experience life in an English primary school.
