Background: The British students visiting newly independent Ghana under the auspices of a large chocolate firm are receiving full diplomatic courtesy from Ghanese officials everywhere they go.
The boys and girls from schools and colleges in the Birmingham area are being shown every aspect of Ghanese economic, educational and cultural life in and around Accra.
One of the highlights of their visit was a meeting with Ghanese Prime Minister Mr. Nkrumah, to whom one of the girls presented a box of chocolates.
They met, too, students of Achimoto School and were introduced to the headmaster. Later they were shown around the old Christenborg Castle.
