The Broads

Ingrid McCarthy

Ingrid McCarthy
My name is Ingrid McCarthy and I have been a Local Guardian for White House Guardianships since 2002 and during that time have had many interesting experiences supporting the students that have attended the schools in this beautiful area of eastern England.

I have great respect for children and their parents who have taken the decision to travel so far from home to experience school life in a completely different cultural style, and very often in a different language.

My own three children grew up in a country where the language was different from our family language so I have been able to identify with experiences on a personal level. I also taught English for many years so struggles with language usage is something with which I can readily empathise.

Students enjoy the facilities of the well-equipped schools in this area as well as the sweeping landscape and coast line which enhances their stay in Norfolk or Suffolk. The host families that I recruit are often able to widen the cultural experience for students by including them in family outings or going on special excursions.

About the Area

Norfolk is a popular tourist destination and has several major holiday attractions. There are many seaside resorts including some of the finest British beaches such as Great Yarmouth and the Pleasure Beach. Norfolk contains The Broads, which is an area of outstanding beauty with wild bird sanctuaries.

The Queens residence at Sandringham House is in Sandringham, Norfolk and provides all year round tourist attraction.
