A retired superintendent for the Royal Bahamas Police Force inspired a group of Fenland pupils after visiting an academy in Wisbech.
Dennis Dames spoke to Year 10 students at TBAP Octavia AP Academy about his 40 years with the police and how he qualified to become the first police commercial pilot in the Bahamas.
The visit was organised as part of an initiative by TBAP student services manager Ahmed Kadi, to raise learners’ aspirations and discover different cultures.
Mr Dames talked to learners about achieving their goals through hard work, self-reliance and accepting responsibility for their actions.
Mr Kadi said: “We are very grateful to Mr Dames for sharing his experience and inspirational life story.
