I will always remember Wednesday 25th January 2012 as the dayDeptford Green welcomed American business magnate, billionaire, philanthropist and author, Mr Bill Gates to the school.
I applied to the charity Speakers for Schools when I saw it advertised somewhere. Sending off my form, my one request being "please don't send us a boring, stuffy professor who doesn't know how to speak to teenagers," I forgot all about it. In my Christmas holidays I received a call saying that to launch the scheme, they want to match up the unlikeliest pairing of a world famous speaker with an inner city London comprehensive.
