Professor and author Fernando Reimers visits Alperton Community School

Last week we had the great opportunity of meeting the author Fernando Reimers, who visited our school to talk to our students about his latest book “Filomena’s teachers”.

This is the fourth book in the series “The Adventures of Filomena” and the story was inspired by our art and textiles teacher Andria Zafirakou. In this fourth book, Filomena, a twelve year old parakeet meets Andria, a teacher who teaches students who have left their home countries and became refugees.

During his visit, Fernando shared with the students many personal stories and was happy to answer questions from our students about the book and about his writing career. At the end of the day, our students offered Fernando a small piece of artwork as a thank you for visiting our school.
