Wendy Bourget at Westminster Comprehensive Sept 2014
Wendy started working the very moment she had been introduced. Though the school wanted her to teach in the senior classes, she made it clear that her interest is with the kids so she taught in the Nursery, Kindergartens and the lower primary.
Abigail Bates Arrives at Westminster School June 2014
She also has some experience of observing English lessons (Language and Literature to English speakers - not TEFL) in secondary schools local to her home in the UK.
Abigail will graduate University this summer with a degree in English Literature, and is due to start a teacher training program in September to enable her to teach English as a secondary school subject.
Donation to The School December 2013
Desmond Afriyie-Churchley has received another one year sponsorship package (fully paid school fees and lunch) from Mr. & Mrs Churchley. Mr. & Mrs. Churchley did not only pay for his school fees and lunch but also sent him loads of gifts for the Christmas. (see donations)
Imke Matuszewski - February 2013
I had the wonderful opportunity to teach English and Maths at Westminster, and after school I would hang out with the boarders. The kids showed me around Fumesua and they integrated me into their daily lives, enlightening me on their local dishes.
I was also lucky enough to go on an excursion to lake Bosumtwi with Abena, the school librarian and to experience a traditional wedding too.
Volunteering was a fantastic finish to my prior travels, backpacking through Ghana, which I can strongly recommend too!

Nick Wood - July 2012
I have spent three months volunteering at Westminster Comprehensive School. The school itself is impressive. It's a good functional building, has a well-stocked library, computers on hand, and the class sizes are around 30 pupils in each. The teaching staff is a lot younger than I expected - but this gives the place an energetic, can-do feel to it.

Roger Hambly - November 2011
Teaching at Westminster has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. From the time Eric greeted me as I hopped off the bus in Fumesua until the day the teachers and students farewelled me 6 weeks later, I felt extremely welcome at Westminster School.

A Visit to Lake Bosomtwi
As part of the programs organised to make volunteers happy in their stay in Ghana, the school organised some sightseeing to some exciting places in Ghana. Pictures below were taken from the trip to Lake Bosomtwi.
