SCHOOL staff from Nigeria and Ghana visited Royston last week.

Sixteen people from the West African countries came to Royston as part of the Connecting Classrooms initiative, which will see schools in the town build lasting relationships with their African counterparts.

Rebecca Bradbury, who is co-ordinating the scheme, said: "All the students were so excited about meeting the visitors and learning more about the different cultures - I think everyone involved in the scheme learned an awful lot and benefited a great deal from the experience."

Staying with host families in Royston, the visitors had a full itinerary for the week, spending time in school, as well as performing in the Youth Makes Music Concert at West Road on the Friday evening and a visit to London sightseeing on Wednesday.

On Thursday they joined students from Royston for a PHSCE Day and Student Conference.
