Springwood High School recently hosted a visit from Albert Quartey, deputy principal of their twinned school, St Georges, in Accra, Ghana.

This was the return visit following a trip to Ghana in October 2014 by three of the Springwood staff and a former pupil.

Talented Year 10 student Connor Russell won a design competition to produce a commemorative mug celebrating the link between the two schools.

Lynn-based company Listawood, which has worked with the school’s modern languages department on a number of occasions, kindly offered to judge the winner of the competition and produce the mugs, which were used as prizes at Springwood. Following a tour of the factory, Alex Turner, owner of Listawood, presented the mugs to Mr Quartey and Connor Russell.
