Connor Roe Visits Gordonstoun

OG Connor Roe visits Gordonstoun

On Friday, Gordonstoun welcomed former student  Connor Roe, who came to  tell us about his daring efforts in helping to rescue the twelve children and coach that were stuck in a cave for 10 days in Thailand. His incredible story explained how he was given just four hours from his initial phone call until boarding the plane for Thailand. It was a three-day operation and took a total of eight hours to swim to the point where the children were and back again. The children had many burning questions for Connor from how deep was the cave to how the oxygen tanks worked. He was an inspiration to us all.

received their Cambridge English Level 1 Certificate in ESOL International.
