Visit of the Portuguese Ambassador to Le Rocquier School

On Friday 21st September Le Rocquier hosted a visit from His Excellency, Mr Manuel Lobo Antunes, Ambassador to the Court of St James. During the visit His Excellency met with students both in the classroom and in our library resource centre to discuss the experiences our students receive in Jersey both educationally and socially.

The delegation also included Senator Tracey Vallois, Minister for Education and Sean O’Regan, Group Director, Education, Children, Young People, Education & Skills.

Commenting from the External Relations Department, Laura Harris stated:

‘Overall, we felt that this was a very productive and valuable visit which served to further strengthen and deepen our bilateral relations with Portugal, and I know that for the delegation the school visit was a particular highlight. It was very positive to see so many of the students on Friday afternoon and everything ran very smoothly, so thank you again to Andy and team for welcoming us to Le Rocquier.’
