Nya Kirby enjoyed his time visiting the school and hopes to come back. Nya said, “It was a fantastic experience. The kids were really nice and I enjoyed showing them some skills. We walked in and the group started clapping for us and you could just see how happy they were but we absolutely loved it.”

Yusifu Ceesay also praised the experience. Yusifu said, “This was the first time I have ever done a visit to a school and I really liked it. The children were so good and happy. The Trust do a lot of good work in the community and if we can give back in any way, then we will be happy to do so.”
