Fatmata Barrie

Good Afternoon Mr Adjetey,

I hope you are doing well and keeping safe. My name is Fatmata Barrie and I was a student at Harris Primary Academy Peckham Park. I found your contact on LinkedIn and I wanted to say thank you for your efforts. Despite the fact that you were not my class teacher during my time at school, you really gave me an unforgettable experience at primary school.

This is especially when we had the school events. I always remember how you would play the drums, sing and dance which allowed me to see how welcoming you were at embracing cultures. I even remember when I was in nursery and you taught me the song, ‘Che Che Kule’. However, I think most importantly how proud you were to be Ghanaian.

You really made my experience at primary school second to none and even the dance routine you taught us to the song, ‘You sey wetin’ by Zigi, I still remember it. Whenever I hear it, I always dance that routine and remind my mum of it. I am really appreciative of all time and effort you put in to ensure that, primary school was enjoyable and memorable. If there is any student you left a mark on, I am proud to say that I was one of them.

This is because being a student with a teacher who is supportive and fun is reassuring. I am currently 18 years old and heading to university this September to study Child Nursing as I want to specialise in neonatal nursing. As I am taking on adulthood slowly, the lesson you taught me about being proud of your culture and not letting anyone degrade you for it will always remain with me.

Once again, thank you so much for everything! 

Best wishes,
